I am currently reading the book, and realize that Mrs. Lacks grew up not far away. As a teacher, I had a student with the last name of Lacks, unaware of the significance of the name. Fascinating, but darkly disturbing, story that underscores the horrors of racism.

Loved the book and it was very educational. First I could not understand why the Lacks family was not receiving $, but at the end the author explained we all get something taken from us, blood, moles, etc. and we do not know what they do with them. It was upsetting to read how blacks were treated.
