“Life Goes On:” The Legacy of Henrietta Lacks and Turner Station

Sollers Point Multi-Purpose Center 323 Sollers Point Road, Dundalk, MD

Please join us for a walking tour of Turner Station, Dundalk, the last home of Henrietta Lacks. Don’t know who Henrietta Lacks was? Most of the world didn’t until about ten years ago. Lacks is best recognized for her immortal cells, which have transformed modern medicine. Yet, it took some twenty-five years before the Lacks family received any knowledge of the immortal contribution their beloved wife and mother was making to medical science. Join guide Servant Speed as we walk through Henrietta’s Turner Station community and learn about her incredible story.
