Description
The book is about Henrietta Lacks and the immortal cell line, known as HeLa, that came from Lacks's cervical cancer cells in 1951. The book is notable for its science writing and dealing with ethical issues of race and class in medical research.
This is a work of nonfiction. No names have been changed, no characters invented, no events fabricated. While writing this book, I conducted more than a thousand hours of interviews with
family and friends of Henrietta Lacks, as well as with lawyers, ethicists, scientists, and journalists
who’ve written about the Lacks family. I also relied on extensive archival photos and documents,
scientific and historical research, and the personal journals of Henrietta’s daughter,
Deborah Lacks.
