On This Day;

In 1985, actor Rock Hudson became the first major U.S. celebrity to die of complications from AIDS at age 59. The news that an international icon had AIDS focused worldwide attention on the disease and helped change public perceptions of it.

In 1958, the former French colony of Guinea declares its independence, being the sole French West African colony at the time to do so.

Breakfast producer Zak Stuart joins Zoe Kounadis and Tom Mann to elaborate more on these events in history.
