Tonight at 8pm EST @hbo is airing "The Immortal Life Of Henrietta Lacks". The story of Henrietta's cells, HeLa, is truly astonishing. Many say that she is the most important woman in modern science. Click the link in our bio to read 17 facts about her amazing story! Have you read the book or plan to watch the movie? #HeLa #HenriettaLacks #MotherOfModernMedicine #Science #ScienceFacts

@hboofficial premiere of #HenriettaLacks - the story of a black woman's miracle cells which just might save your life - with Leslie Uggams. Don't know, chilrens? Ax. And, correct, apparently she has no time for the whole aging thing.

SO CLOSE to reaching our first milestone! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ Thank You. The #henriettalacks foundation not only grants money to her descendants, but also those of the Tuskegee experiment. Black folks have been been examined, poked and prodded for decades. Often without consent, knowledge and compensation. This was the least we could do to help aid some of those who have been affected. 100% of the proceeds go to the foundation. Thanks again for sharing and supporting! ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

Did you know that there's an asteroid named for Henrietta Lacks in honor of her contribution to medical science? Had such fun on this collage for the TED Fellows blog! #HeLa #henriettalacks #science #creativity #design #twitter

Did you know #henriettalacks has cells cut from her cervix living on forever. Her cells have been shipped by the trillions to laboratories all over the world. Her cells went up in the first space missions. They also helped with medical advances in Polio, Chemotherapy and Cloning. #blackhistory For the People #melanin #melaninpoppin #blackgirlmagic #magic

On my way home I stumbled on the mental hospital from the movie about Henrietta Lacks. #henriettalacks #oprahwinfrey #insanetraffictoday #waze

Well, it is hard to say anything. I am just reading 'The immortal life of Henrietta Lacks' by Rebecca Skloot - and I really just don't know what to say. I already have read about tens of crimes of medicine against humanity, against people - although I am only halfway through the book. The experiments of nazi doctors, the syphilis experiments of Tuskegee on black males, the HeLa cells injected into human arms/bloodstreams without the permission of the subjects. Without knowing it at all! We did it. We, medical doctors, assistants, scientists. We have deceived, poisoned people, we have used them as experimental 'animals'. For what? We hid behind the 'pompous' sentence: for the benefit of all mankind. We have done it - all of it. And yes, we have find cure for many of the diseases. But what was the price? Our humanity. And yet, I am still in love with medical sciences. I deify and despise our ancestors in science. They sacrificed people - to save them. And that's not right, that's not even human. It is illegal, immoral, infernal. So what is the moral of a fable? We have to become greater. We have to protect humanity - even from ourselves. #henriettalacks
