I have no medical background and I had never heard of HeLa, but I needed something enlightening to read and I saw this title pop up in a couple of articles. Certainly as a Black woman whose own mother was born in the 1920's, this story hit home. I was impressed with the backstory Skloot was able to obtain on Henrietta and Elsie; I appreciated also how Skloot followed HeLa's "celebrity" from humble "homemade" beginnings to world domination. What an education! God bless the family.




Did you know about the fight between Rebecca Skloot and the president of generic viagra brands in the last Berlin Festival? They say they fell on the floor and hit each other.
