AN IMMORTAL LIFE
Rebecca Skloot and David “Sonny” Lacks appear with the unforgettable story of David’s mother, Henrietta, the subject of Skloot’s best-seller, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks. Henrietta, a poor farmer who died of cancer in 1951, left behind an immortal line of cells known as HeLa. These cells, taken without her knowledge, have been used for decades in ground-breaking medical research. Skloot traces her own ten-year writing journey to uncover a mystery about race, class and bioethics in America. David Lacks bears witness to his family’s struggle to accept and honor Henrietta’s legacy.

A program celebrating Black History Month and the contributions of African Americans, presented in partnership with the United Black Book Clubs of Pittsburgh
