AIDS Prevention and Services: Community Based Research

By Johannes P. Van Vugt | Go to book overview
based service providers also have to address their class biases. Neither tendency can be overlooked or circumscribed if the collaboration is going to reach, and work with, the underclass.

Eventually, the African American community's ambivalence about dealing with AIDS will have to be overcome. This will probably not happen until it is apparent that the epidemic will not stop with gays and bisexuals and IV drug users. Whenever the time, the social class-driven variations in AIDS risks will have to be acknowledged and addressed. AIDS prevention will not simply be a matter of finding the most culturally appropriate way to reach African Americans. Approaches that will reach specific classes and divisions within each class will have to be developed and executed through service programs. This is the context and challenge that will require a close collaboration of resources between local university researchers and evaluators and community based organizations. The Bayview Hunter's Point MIRA research program was an early model of such a collaboration.


NOTES
1.
This development is very apparent when one reads a detailed history of the civil rights movement such as Taylor Branch Parting the Waters: America in the King Years 1954-63 ( 1988). Activists were drawn heavily from among housewives. These black women are now working, as indicated by Bart Landry The New Black Middle Class ( 1989).
2.
The concept of the "underclass" was popularized by William J. Wilson The Declining Significance of Race: Blacks and Changing American Institutions ( 1978). Wilson's work does not focus on social class culture, but it does point to how inadequate contemporary knowledge of black lower-class culture is.
