Description

Join Iota Phi Lambda Sorority, Inc. Gamma Delta Chapter as we celebrate Black History Month with a special showing of The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks.

The Immortal Life Of Henrietta Lacks tells the story of Henrietta Lacks, an African-American woman whose cells were used to create the first immortal human cell line. Told through the eyes of her daughter, Deborah Lacks (Oprah Winfrey), the film chronicles her search, aided by journalist Rebecca Skloot, to learn about the mother she never knew and to 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.

**This event is open to the public.**

Doors open at 5:30pm
