The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks. This book was educational in that it told the story of Mrs. Lacks whose cells were used to advance modern medicine with no knowledge of nor consent provided from her family. This book educates you on how minorities were used by the medical field. It also weaves in the hardships her family has faced over the years and how people simply refused to let them know what was going on. While many physicians and companies became wealthy from her cells, her own family lacked access to medical care. The unfortunate reality is this type of practice still occurs. @rebeccaskloot produced an amazing story that not only educates us about history but makes you aware of what could still be. This book fulfilled the R Read.E.ID. It was a educational read that brings about awareness and knowledge. #readempowerinvigoratedream #Reidbooks #henriettalacks @broadwaybooks #rebeccaskloot

Hello! My name is Kier Williams (@key__er ) and I am an incoming freshman from Richmond , Virginia .
At the tender age or 4 years old , I knew that I aspired to be a Veterinarian . At the the age of 10 years old , my mother instructed me to research 5 HBCUs with accredited Veterinary Medicine programs . Among my findings , I stumbled upon #tuskegeeuniversity and instantaneously fell in love .
Since that day , my mind has been made up and I knew that Tuskegee was the right choice for me . That was indicative by they're track record of producing quality students who are phenomenal leaders drenched in excellence .
Now I know it was be an experience that will push me beyond the limits of my comfort zone , but IM READY FOR THE CHALLENGE ! T-U

My name is Kristian-Zani Eatman ( @shestay_running ) and I chose Tuskegee University for the culture and tradition that is instilled in every part of the campus. The feeling of a second home and the opportunities that are made available to African American students made Tuskegee my first and only choice to continue my dreams. β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”

Unbelievable!!!! I'm watching the story of the Immortal Life Mrs. Henrietta Lacks, she gave the world the Hela cell. A fascinating story, her cell therapy has saved countless of millions of people around the world. Oprah Winfrey produced and starred in the movie. So here's my painting "Guide Me Over" featured above Oprah Winfrey in bed in a truly remarkable and meaningful movie. It has been and will continue to be seen by millions of people around the globe. I am so thrilled. God is good. T. Ellis http://www.tellisfineart.com/guide-me-over/
