A daughter’s love, down to the cellular level. #HBO #HenriettaLacks @oprah @reneeelisegoldsberry

I wanted to stay in Italy longer, but breathing in @oprah's air tonight makes me beyond happy to be home #Oprah #henriettalacks #hbo

Happy Birthday to Smart Girl #HenriettaLacks! Her unique cells were the source of the HeLa cell line, the first immortalized cell line and one of the most important cell lines in medical research. 🔬 Click the link in the bio to learn more. (📷: Michael Gillette)

@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.

The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks premiered last night! I wept watching the brilliant work of these women and the entire company on the big screen. To quote director #georgecwolfe--everyone gave their heart in this film. And so did he. #HenriettaLacks and all her children deserve nothing less. #HenriettaLacksMovie @HBO #REDCARPET @oprah #RoseByrne

This is the Kindle advertisement for "The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks" now. Its Oprah's face. #Oprah--who didn't even depict Henrietta in that God awful movie--is now her face. Think about what it means to have a black billionaire become the face of a woman whose wealth (cells) was stolen. It's a cheap psychological trick to make us think things have changed.

SO CLOSE to reaching our first milestone! 🙏🏾 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! 😬


#inktober Day 17.

~Quando la gente me lo chiede- e sono sempre lì a fare domande, non riesco mai a mollarli- io dico che sì, mia madre si chiamava Henrietta Lacks, è morta nel 1951, al John Hopkins hanno preso le sue cellule e 'ste cellule sono ancora vive, si moltiplicano, crescono e se non si tengono congelate vanno dappertutto. Gli scienziati la chiamano HeLa, e lei è in tutto il mondo, negli ospedali, nei computer, in internet, dappertutto.
Tutte le volte che vado dal dottore per i controlli dico che HeLa era mia madre. Loro sono tutti entusiasti, e mi dicono che le sue cellule hanno aiutato a fare le mie medicine per la pressione e le mie pillole per la depressione, e che tutte queste scoperte importanti della scienza sono successe grazie a lei. Ma non mi spiegano mai niente, solo cose del tipo sua madre è andata sulla luna, è stata nelle bombe nucleari, ha fabbricato il vaccino della polio. Davvero non so come ha fatto tutto questo, ma in un certo senso sono contenta, perché significa che sta aiutando un mucchio di gente. Penso che le farebbe piacere.
Però ho sempre pensato: che strano, se le cellule di nostra madre hanno fatto tanto per la medicina, com'è che la sua famiglia non può permettersi visite mediche? Non ha proprio senso. C'è gente che ha fatto un sacco di soldi grazie alla mamma e noi non sapevamo neppure che le prendevano le cellule, e oggi non vediamo un centesimo. Prima mi arrabbiavo così tanto se ci pensavo, mi faceva star male, e dovevo prendere delle pillole. Ma adesso non ho più la forza di lottare. Voglio solo sapere chi era mia madre.

Happy Monday! ✨ it's not necessarily happy for me- I'm sick but anyways...
This book is called The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks and I would rate this a 4.5/5 💛 Rebecca Skloot is a journalist, she first heard of Henrietta Lacks in a biology class. Skloot soon realized that no one knew much about Henrietta Lacks, the women who's cells changed history. She then began to research and learn more about Henrietta and decided to tell her tale. This book jumps back and forth between time to make Henrietta’s story come to life. As we continue to read the book, we are introduced to Henrietta, an African-American women who died due to cervical cancer. She underwent through a lot of treatments where doctors would try to treat her. However a doctor took Henrietta’s cells, harvested them, and used them to develop HeLa cells. These cells were “immortal” that contributed to scientifics discoveries. Rebecca Skloot helps Henrietta’s family learn about what this woman’s cells did even after her death. This book is very touching, emotional, and so intense. It was very informational and I never had heard of Henrietta Lacks before and this book made me go research and learn more about this important figure. The movie of this book came out this year and I have yet to see it but I can’t wait. This book was truly amazing and you guys should check it out. 💫

I’m currently on a book buying ban with hopes that it’ll force me to read the books I already have. I don’t actually have THAT many unread books, but I find that even having 20 overwhelms and discourages me. So, I’m not buying anything new until I make a sizable dent in what I already have!
Unfortunately, I’m in a bit of a slump and haven’t had the energy to read more than a few pages at a time since Tuesday. It’s frustrating, but I know all I can do is try to get back into a routine this week.
I’m the meantime, here are some of the nonfiction titles that are mixed in with my unread books. I love nonfiction but need to be in a very specific state of mind to read it, which means I probably won’t finish these for a while (Next summer? After the 2020 elections? We’ll see 🤷🏻‍♀️).
