AIDS, Posters, and Stories of Public Health:
A People’s History of a Pandemic

June 3 - July 13, 2024

The National Library of Medicine produced AIDS, Posters, and Stories of Public Health: A People’s History of a Pandemic. The exhibition was guest curated by Theodore Kerr, a writer, organizer, and founding member of What Would an HIV Doula Do?


The traveling exhibition and companion website explore the archive of public health posters about AIDS at the National Library of Medicine which is rooted in the cultural output of artists, activists, and community workers. Their work—specifically, the use of personal narrative, drawing as a visual art strategy, language, and the collective process in the creation of AIDS posters–continues to broadcast the message that, 40 years after the crisis began, AIDS is not over.


AIDS, Posters, and Stories of Public Health includes an education component with a college and university level class resource. A digital gallery features a curated selection of fully digitized items from the historical collections of the NLM, which are also available in the entirety in NLM Digital Collections.


A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin, and culture is like a tree without roots.
