AIDS conference in D.C.

For the first time in 20 years, the world's largest AIDS conference was held back in the U.S. Over the weekend, an AIDS quilt lined a section of the National Mall--with celebrities, artists and area locals all coming out to support the cause and spread the word.

Musician Wyclef Jean, with Dr. Cornel West behind him, waited to go on stage for his performance at the "Keep the Promise on HIV/AIDS" rally and march on Sunday afternoon. The event coincided with the opening day of the XIX International AIDS Conference at the D.C. convention center.
