The Scottish launch of Our Stories Told by Us, a groundbreaking new book celebrating the African contribution to the UK HIV response.

In this event, the co-authors will share their personal stories and reflections, as well as their journey in bringing this book to life, from concept to reality.

Our Stories Told by Us shares the experiences and reflections of Africans living with HIV, and of allies, doctors, and nurses, providing an authentic reflection of collective journeys. The book coincides with the 40th anniversary of the first HIV cases in the UK. It commemorates 40 years of strength, resilience, and leadership in the fight against HIV stigma.

Our Stories Told by Us was co-authored by five African women living in the UK:

  • Angelina Namiba,
  • Winnie Ssanyu-Sseruma,
  • Rebecca Mbewe,
  • Charity Nyirenda, and
  • Memory Sachikonye.

This talk is part of the events programme for the Library’s Collection in Focus exhibition, Blood Sweat and Tears, presented in partnership with Waverley Care.
