“Your test came back positive for HIV.”

Seven words no one ever wants to hear. Imagine going to the doctor for a routine check-up and, weeks later, your test comes back positive for the Human Immunodeficiency Virus. What would you say? What would you do? Who would you call? This exact situation became Jessica Glaspie-Davis’ reality. That one sentence meant changing her life forever.

At the tender age of 22, Glaspie-Davis was diagnosed with HIV and had no idea where it came from. However, she’s not alone.

According to the Center of Disease Control, African-Americans represent 12% of the population but account for 44% percent of HIV diagnoses, the highest rate compared to other races and ethnicities.

With HIV and AIDS affecting the African-American community at such a rate, we wanted to put a face and story to these alarming statistics.

    I’ve been taking HIV tests since I was 15! It’s very important. Thank God I had people educate me on protection and life in general!

  • Marlow Stanfield

    With all the medications now a days HIV is still bad but not horror story it once was. Back in the mid 90s an HIV diagnosis was like a stage 3 cancer diagnosis, now a days it's more like a herpes diagnosis. The only thing that changes is you just have to take medicine everyday

    My cousin is in jail right now for given out hiv . It’s sad but men still slept with her even after hearing she had it. But I feel like she is going to easy on him. I’m sorry she should have told on him. She seems like she feels sorry for him. She shouldn’t feels sorry for his ass. But that’s messed up. He is an horrible person. He should know how to deal with it the fact he was born with it that’s messed up. But dam that man loves her. He must was the one she left?

  • Tequila Smith

    She looks so beautiful and she still looks so young she still looks 22 . I feel so bad for her she had her whole life ahead of her.

  • Two-G'z Up

    Wow I am just glad that this story has a happy ending with her but as far as that Nigga passing it around knowing , someone’s brother or cousin is gonna blow his shit back and walk smooth off for what he doing

  • Dirk Antoine

    I thought I wasn't gonna like this interview and ended up locked in. She's so inspirational, I have a HIV Scare and it straightened me right effing out.. I couldn't imagine how I would deal if I caught it.
