Description:

In this post, students will learn how trading cards were used to educate those who could not be reached through more traditional methods during the AIDS epidemic. In 1993, comic book publisher Eclipse Enterprises released a set of 110 AIDS Awareness trading cards. The cards feature a variety of HIV/AIDS information and organizations, as well as personalities who died from AIDS, were currently battling the disease, or were involved in AIDS awareness. Written by Franklin A. Robinson, Jr.,Archives Specialist for the Smithsonian Archives Center, this post is published on the Museum's "O Say Can You See?" blog.
