The ACT UP Oral History Project has been documenting the history of AIDS Activism by conducting long-format interviews of members of ACT UP.  We’ve done 103 interviews so far.  We are creating a vital and complex portrait of a diverse community of people who came to believe that self-empowerment, social change and direct political action could provide solutions to the AIDS crisis and investigating the history of a movement that chose civic engagement over palliative solutions and which has served as a model for increased participation in public affairs for marginalized groups in the New York City and around the world.

Thanks to a grant from Manhattan Neighborhood Network.
