Discussion on the impact of Henrietta Lacks- Macon Library

I read the Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks a few years ago and was mesmerized and horrified to learn about her life, death, and her unknowing and uncompensated contribution to modern science.

This event popped into my inbox and I wanted to share: the Smithsonian and Henrietta Lacks’ family will be in
Brooklyn this weekend
discussing her impact on science.
This is an event that shouldn’t be missed.
Post here if you end up making it!
