The African HIV/AIDS crisis has t been met with new social theories concerning Africans as people. Thus, little in the research literature captures the painful facts of our kwing. Preferring to focus on the need for information about HIV/AIDS many people gloss over even their own human experiences. And so, without intending to do so, and without being aware of it, they silence questions of existence. This sometimes lyrical, philosophical book is a roar that advocates real living, real meeting, real recognition and real hope.
