The Hope project put a human face on HIV/AIDS in Jamaica. The Emmy and Webby-winning website by the team at Bluecadet framed the poetry of Kwame Dawes, a Ghanaian-Jamaican writer with the photography of Joshua Cogan, video interviews with the subjects of Dawes’ poems, and music commissioned for the project.
Poet and writer Kwame Dawes traveled to Jamaica to explore the experience of people living with HIV/AIDS and to examine the ways in which the disease had shaped their lives. The journey brought him in touch with people who told their stories, shared their lives and taught him about resilience, hope and possibility in the face of despair.
The Pulitzer Center-commissioned website memorialized this journey and the people he met.
