@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.

I get a kick out of @courtneybvance he carries his camera everywhere he goes! I tried to be slick & snap a photo of him taking photos & he did this move on me, lmao! He's an awesome guy & obviously an insanely talented actor but the surprise is that's he's funny as all get out! #henriettalacks

Don't forget to watch @Oprah tonight on @hbo in #HENRIETTALACKS I saw it earlier this week and it's powerful!!! She tears up very scene she's in!! Must see!! And the movie uncovers an untold story of the contributions African-Americans have made to modern medicine!

-Wrath of Khan...Watching Star Trek earlier gave me some 💎to think of. The word Khan in the past has been used to designate Kingship of different areas on the planet. Stretching both hemispheres the word can be found in Asian culture as well as #aboriginalamerican culture. This would include being a synonym for serpent or dragon. Details concerning Christopher Columbus would talk about the people of america were known as Khan, a example being in recently in the game Mortal Kombat X , Kotal Khan being depicted as a #aboriginalamerican. Khan from the Star trek movie is primarily based on the Satan/Lucifer(lightbringer) construct of being a superior being who fell into slumber & one who would rebel against the established order. Before his sleep he would stash 72 members of his race into missiles to later on guide them to safety, this act could also quite similarly be compared to the casting out of Satan & a numerous amount of angels in tow. Just like #henriettalacks cells his blood can cure just about anything. Also mentioned above is the role of 72,144, having a connect with 9 which many view as the complete or a divine number. #artimitateslifehashtag #moors

I have been behind on my 2017 reading challenge, school has been taking much of my time. Reading has been left for when I'm traveling on the subway.

Without Henrietta, alot of us may not be alive today. We owe it to Henrietta to know her story.

HeLa cells lead to breakthroughs in the study of herpes, leukemia, influenza, hemophilia, Parkinson's disease, certain types of genetic diagnoses, cancer, AIDS, cloning, the effects of radiation and toxic substances, and in vitro fertilization.

"The reason Henrietta's cells were so precious was because they allowed scientists to perform experiments that would have been impossible with a living human." - "The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks" by Rebecca Skloot #henriettalacks #rebeccaskloot #theimmortallifeofhenriettalacks #2017readingchallenge #book5of52 #thankyou

Hollywood seems to have trouble coming up with movies these days, so they keep turning to books for the good stuff.

Don't worry Hollywood, we got your back. There's plenty more where these came from!
