WILLIAMSBRIDGE - As part of Black History Month, a Williamsbridge church hosted a play written by a parishioner about HIV and AIDS.

Tamisha Sabio Hall performed her play "I Know Because I Been There...Done That" in front of her congregation at Bronx Christian Fellowship. Hall says she hopes her play raises HIV and AIDS awareness among young people.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, blacks account for an estimated 44 percent of all new HIV infections among adults and adolescents. As part of the event, the church also hosted confidential screening for HIV and Hepatitis C.
