After a decade-worth of research, top selling book, along with Oprah’s stamp of approval-this movie is sure to be a must see!
Rebecca Skloot originally wrote The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks in 2010 and Oprah is now turning her words & research into an HBO original film.
The movie, set to premiere in April, stars Oprah Winfrey, Renee Elise Goldsberry (as Henrietta Lacks), Courtney B. Vance and Rose Byrne. It exposes the truth about one Black woman’s contribution to science and one daughter’s quest to know her mother’s story.
The film follows Deborah Lacks’, (played by Oprah), journey to “learn about the mother she never knew and understand how the unauthorized harvesting of Lacks’ cancerous cells in 1951 led to unprecedented medical breakthroughs, changing countless lives and the face of medicine forever.”
These are the stories we have to support for the culture & to preserve our legacies!
