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.
