The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks with Lacks Family members

Theinternationalsuccess of Rebecca Skloots New York Times bestseller,The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, has created keen interest in the Lacks Family and Henriettas legacy. In their appearances, the family shares with audiences what it meant to find outdecades after the factthat Henrietta's cells were being used in laboratories around the world, bought and sold by the billions. The family's visits put a personal face to big issues such as the dark history of experimentation on African Americans, the birth of bioethics, and the legal battles over informed consent and whether we control the stuff were made of, and should share in the profits.

The Lacks Family is proud to honor the memory of Henrietta and her unparalleled contributions to science; in celebrating her legacy, family members give audiences a sincere first-person perspective on the collision between ethics, race and the commercialization of human tissue, and how the experience changed the Lacks family from generation to generation.

David Lacks, Jr. is a computer engineer and sits on the board of NIH, working with the policies on experimentation. Shirley Lacks was Debra's best friend growing up and the oldest family member to speak at these events. She will discuss first hand her experience in the south and the culture of the time.

Sponsored by the The Thomas B. Healy Fund, Williams Reads, and the Gaudino Fund. For free tickets, contact the '62 Center Box Office, Tues - Sat, 1-5 pm at 413-597-2425 or order online.
