Being Henrietta explores the story of Henrietta Lacks, a poor black tobacco farmer whose cancer cells, taken without her knowledge, became one of the most important tools in medicine, with damaging consequences for her family who today can’t afford access to the health care advances their mother’s cells helped make possible. Written by current MFA student Jeff Augustin with Monique Gaffney and directed by Professor Nadine George.
