    With March being National Women’s History Month, as well as March 10 being National Women’s and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day,  HIV/AIDS activist, motivational speaker and author, Denise Stokes, is using her experience and voice as an advocate for HIV/AIDS awareness.

    Stokes has been living with HIV for 30 years, ever since she was raped as a 13-year-old virgin.

    She decided to find the strength to be an advocate for HIV/AIDS awareness and not let it be a death sentence for her. She would later become an adviser to President Clinton for his HIV/AIDS Council.

    She has been a longtime spokesman for BET’s “Rap It Up Campaign” and even spoke at the 2004 Democratic National Convention on behalf of Sen. John Kerry.

    She has a great new autobiography titled “From The Crack House To The White House,” now available at

    Stokes, a Savannah native who lives in Atlanta, is a writer with work contributed to James Adler’s opera “Memento Mori – An AIDS Requiem.”

    Her exciting spoken-word CD, “Elevation,” released in 2002, is still in demand.  Stokes actively mentors several of her HIV-positive peers and makes volunteer commitments on a regular basis.

    With an endless amount of enthusiasm, Stokes continues to speak for the rights of people disenfranchised by HIV, addiction, homophobia and racism – as well as carry a passionate message of prevention and awareness to the world.
