In this post I will be answering the questions below in relation to my Gil Scott Heron panel. I will be using these answers to find secondary research.
What subculture is embodied in the AIDS quilt block/panel you’ve chosen to document and research.?
What is the relationship between the subculture embodied in the quilt and the HIV/AIDS epidemic?
- The subculture in the quilt was one of the biggest yet overlooked populations affected by the AIDS epidemic, especially during the late 1900’s.
