Thurman, who formally served as Director of the White House Office on National AIDS Policy and Presidential Envoy for AIDS Cooperation under President Clinton. It has since grown to include a number of people who played a role in shaping Atlanta’s response to the crisis, including healthcare professionals, activists, politicians, and various members of other AIDS service organizations, local philanthropic organizations, and Atlanta’s religious communities.

Scope and Content Note

The collection consists of roughly 14 oral history interviews conducted by the Atlanta AIDS Legacy Project. Interviewees include people involved in HIV and AIDS advocacy in Atlanta, GA during the 1980s and 1990s.
