Henrietta, a poor farmer who died of cancer in 1951, left behind an immortal line of cells known as HeLa. These cells, taken without her knowledge, have been used for decades in ground-breaking medical research. Skloot traces her own ten-year writing journey to uncover a mystery about race, class and bioethics in America.
