    Story
    (2669)

    Her name was Henrietta Lacks, but scientists know her as HeLa. She was a poor Southern tobacco farmer who worked the same land as her slave ancestors, yet her cells, taken without her knowledge, became one of the most important tools in medicine. The first immortal human cells grown in culture, they are still alive today, though she has been dead for more than 60 years.

    Story
    What disappointed you about The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks?

    That the family was never given health care insurance.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Rebecca Skloot again?

    Oh yes, she wrote this book in a manner that draws you in. You want to know everything about Henrietta and what her cells did and still do. Science class made fun!


    How could the performance have been better?

    I really cannot say unless it was a follow up on the family now.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    It never seams to amaze me that we treated people in this way. My heart aches for all the families who have to deal with racism still even today. We are better then that.
    The family should be given some sort of national award by the President..


    Any additional comments?

    I just tell everyone I know that they should read this book it is a story that all should know.
