Science: Rebecca Skloot: The Ongoing 'Life' of Henrietta Lacks
Henrietta Lacks was a poor tobacco farmer whose cells, taken by scientists during a hospital stay in 1951, without her knowledge, became one of the most important tools in medicine. "HeLa" cells were vital in developing the polio vaccine; uncovered secrets of cancer, viruses, and the effects of the atom bomb; and have been bought and sold by the billions. Rebecca Skloot, author of The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, shows how the story of the Lacks familypast and presentis at once connected to the shameful history of experimentation on black Americans and the birth of bioethics. Presented as part of Seattle Science Lectures, with Pacific Science Center and University Book Store. Series sponsored by Microsoft.
