David Sasaki of Rising Voices, a Knight News Challenge 2007 winner, has posted a new video with bloggers Thandanani, Sinempilo, and Zwelithini from the Rising Voices project in Kwa Mashu, the largest of Durban, South Africa's three townships.

David writes:

Much of the conversation [is] Thandanani explaining why he didn't want to know his HIV status and Sinempilo and Zwelithini trying to convince him that he should get tested. Enjoy the conversation:

Rising Voices is part of Global Voices, a global network of bloggers, and the larger site has a special coverage page and the below Global Voices Google map of HIV-positive bloggers from GV staff Juhie and Solana.

Also, David also points us to this Wednesday's live chat with Serina and Daudi "about how citizen media can be used to supplement and improve the mainstream media's coverage of the AIDS epidemic. Details on how to participate in the chat are on Serina’s blog."
