Washington Post Profiles Journalist Jim Wooten’s Book About AIDS Advocate Nkosi Johnson
The Washington Post on Monday reviewed journalist Jim Wooten's book, titled "We Are All The Same: A Story of a Boy's Courage and a Mother's Love," a biography of South African HIV/AIDS advocate Nkosi Johnson, who was born HIV-positive and died of AIDS-related complications at age 12. Wooten, an ABC News correspondent, met Nkosi in 2000 (Weeks, Washington Post, 11/29). Nkosi, whose mother also died of AIDS-related causes, and his foster mother Gail Johnson established Nkosi's Haven, a center where low-income women with AIDS can live with their children at no cost (Kaiser Daily HIV/AIDS Report, 2/4/03). The complete article is available online.
A kaisernetwork.org interview with Wooten, conducted by Jackie Judd, vice president and senior adviser for communications at the Kaiser Family Foundation, is available online.
