Commemorating World AIDS Day at the Tompkins Square Library branch

On World AIDS Day this Thursday (Dec. 1), the Tompkins Square Library branch is presenting an online viewing of  "Silence = Death," a video performance by Blow Up Percussion (Rome).

Per the library's website:
The 24-minute-long video, which will be available from noon to midnight on the Library’s website, includes a list of the names of many New Yorkers who died of AIDS; the list of names continues long after the music climaxes and ends in a silent memorial to the friends and family members lost to a pandemic that continues to this day. AIDS has killed more than 40 million people.
