Updated an old post about “The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks” since this portrait was installed by @smithsonian last month. A fascinating intersection of race, ethics, medicine, and research. Link in profile! Photo from @npr .

Regrann from @nationalblackdoulas -  ALERT 🚨 Regrann from @tassieteaches -  Incidents like this should NEVER happen! This is a very unfortunate event. I strongly believe there is more to this story than what we are being told (i.e. #HenriettaLacks) This is why I strongly emphasize education. Education is K.E.Y. 🔑 Keep Educating Yourself. Healthy wombmen can and do have healthy pregnancies 🤰🏾. Healthy wombmen can and do have healthy childbirths 👶🏾 without the assistance of hospitals. Hospitals are meant for true pregnancy/labor emergencies only. 🤰🏾👶🏾THIS IS WHY I ADVOCATE HOMEBIRTHS AND UNASSISTED CHILDBIRTHS 🤰🏾👶🏾for healthy wombmen! 📷: @7jstarks

“Her name was Henrietta Lacks, but scientists know her as HeLa. She was a poor black tobacco farmer whose cells—taken without her knowledge in 1951—became one of the most important tools in medicine, vital for developing the polio vaccine, cloning, gene mapping, and more. Henrietta's cells have been bought and sold by the billions, yet she remains virtually unknown, and her family can't afford health insurance. This phenomenal New York Times bestseller tells a riveting story of the collision between ethics, race, and medicine; of scientific discovery and faith healing; and of a daughter consumed with questions about the mother she never knew.” 🔬📚 #henriettalacks #helacells #medicine #history #genetics #ethics #rebeccaskloot #bookstagram #nowreading #biography #medizin #editurapublica

Modern medicine is indebted to this woman, Henrietta Lacks. That debt has gone too long unpaid.
Unlike the other women we highlighted this week, Henrietta was no scientist, mathematician, or engineer. She was a farmer and a mother whose life was short, but whose impact is immortal. At the age of 30, Henrietta went to the only hospital that would treat black patients in her area, and learned that she had cervical cancer. During treatments, tissue samples were taken without her knowledge/permission and given to a researcher at that hospital. Her tumor cells were special, in that they reproduced faster than typical cells and, and could reproduce indefinitely (termed an "immortal cell line"). Immortal cell lines are extremely useful for cell and tissue culture-based research, and Henrietta's line (HeLa) was the first used in research and sold commercially, making it arguablly the most important cell lines in medicine. Henrietta passed away at the age of 31 in 1951, without knowledge of her cell line's use. Her family was also not aware of HeLa until  about 1975, and they still have not been compensated for HeLa's use to this day. .
.
Henrietta's resting place is unknown, but in her family plot a new tombstone reads:
"In loving memory of a phenomenal woman, wife and mother who touched the lives of many. Here lies Henrietta Lacks (HeLa). Her immortal cells will continue to help mankind forever. Eternal Love and Admiration, From your Family"

Henrietta Lacks (born Loretta Pleasant; August 1, 1920 – October 4, 1951)[2] was an African-American woman whose cancer cells are the source of the HeLa cell line, the first immortalized cell line and one of the most important cell lines in medical research. An immortalized cell line will reproduce indefinitely under specific conditions, and the HeLa cell line continues to be a source of invaluable medical data to the present day. Lacks was the unwitting source of these cells from a tumor biopsied during treatment for cervical cancer at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland, U.S., in 1951. These cells were then cultured by George Otto Gey who created the cell line known as HeLa, which is still used for medical research. As was then the practice, no consent was obtained to culture her cells, nor were she or her family compensated for their extraction or use.

Well-written non-fiction that sucks you in is the biggest treat. #henriettalacks #rebeccaskloot
Since at least 1800s, black oral history has been filled with tales of “night doctors” .... And there were disturbing truths behind those stories.  Because of this history, black residents near #Hopkins have long believed the hospital was built in a poor black neighborhood for the benefit of scientists- to give them easy access to potential research subjects.  But today when people talk about the history of Hopkin’s relationship with the black community, ... the worst offense is that of #HenriettaLacks #HeLa #HLA #theimmortallifeofhenriettalacks #nonfiction #cancer #baltimore #bookaddict

“Representation is vital/ otherwise the butterfly/ surrounded by a group of moths/ unable to see itself/ will keep trying to become the moth.” I love this poem by #rupikaur and I loved the representation of strong black women I saw at the #nationalportraitgallery .  What a magical feeling it is to see yourself reflected back to you  #michelleobama #mariananderson #tonimorrison #henriettalacks
“Let me tell you what I wish I’d known, when I was young and dreamed of glory:
We have no control- who lives, who dies, who tells your story.” #henriettalacks #portrait #nationalportraitgallery #npg #washingtondc #art #history #justice #equality #hamilton #lyrics #linmanuelmiranda

This is ❤️🖤💚 Henrietta Lacks. Her cells were taken from her, without her knowledge, for scientific research. Her cells, termed “HeLa”, were cloned and are still being used today. Read more about her on my previous post. MOMS: IF BIRTHING AT A HOSPITAL, TAKE YOUR PLACENTA HOME WITH YOU!

These are HeLa cells, stolen from African American wombman ❤️🖤💚 HENRIETTA LACKS ❤️🖤💚, and used as scientific medical research. Because Henrietta Lacks’s cells could survive and thrive outside of her body, in 1954, her cells were used to create a polio vaccine. The following year, 1955, HeLa cells were cloned and sold for more medical research. Her family did not learn of this until 1973, when a scientist wanted even more genetic samples (a slap in the face!) from them! Still, no compensation. John Hopkins Hospital made a statement that consent was not routine back when Henrietta’s cells were taken. The hospital stated it was routine for cells to be taken from anyone diagnosed with cervical cancer. HeLa cells are used to research cancer, AIDS, cosmetics, allergies and many other products. They have even taken the cells to space to study the no gravity effect of human cells there. HeLa cells are still being used til this day. 🤰🏾 MOMS, IF YOU WILL BE HAVING YOUR BABY AT THE HOSPITAL, IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOU TAKE YOUR PLACENTA WITH YOU!!! 🤰🏾Your organ belongs to you! Do not volunteer it for genetic medical research.

.@smithsoniannpg unveils portrait by @KadirNelson of Henrietta Lacks, the woman whose cell line – the HeLa cells – paved the way for #genemapping, the #polio vaccine, #ivf and other scientific breakthroughs. #myNPG #Smithsonian #henriettalacks
Very informative read. Entertaining and educational all wrapped up in one. #henriettalacks #amazing #educational #informative #audiobook #learning #neverstop #stayinformed #interesting
An Evening with HeLa: One area that AACHAC has been interested in exploring is clinical trials by highlighting the importance of them and the need for people of color to participate in them. AACHAC was approached about hosting members from Henrietta Lacks’ family to share their story about the impact that the use of her cells in cancer research had on their family as well as the world. With the 2017 airing of The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, starring Oprah Winfrey and airing on HBO, AACHAC saw an opportunity to not only highlight Henrietta’s contribution to medicine and scientific research but to also educate our communities of color about clinical trials and the importance of participating and influencing the emerging trend of personalized medicine.

Got to work with Kenneth Stone Breckenridge and Baynard Woods on this piece about a program teaching research and laboratory training  for free, also got to meet  and film the great granddaughter of Henrietta Lacks who is also in the program and how she is working to reclaim her family's legacy and all the trials and tribulations that come apart of that apart of the journey the video link is in my bio and for the full written story go to www.therealnews.com/columns/biotechnology-black-women-west-baltimore
