Heroes in the Struggle is a photographic tribute to Black Americans and our allies who have made heroic contributions to the fight against HIV/AIDS.  Each year, the Black AIDS Institute inducts new honorees into Heroes in the Struggle at a gala reception and awards presentation. Nearly 100 individuals from all walks of life—celebrities, doctors, policy makers, advocates, caregivers, and people living with AIDS—have been inducted into the exhibit since its inception in 2000.

Since its debut, the Heroes in the Struggle exhibit has traveled the world, raising awareness, challenging individuals and institutions to get involved in their communities, and generating critical conversation about HIV stigma, testing, prevention, treatment and care.
