Happy Monday, friends! I hope you had a fabulous weekend. I know we did! Over the weekend I watched The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, a movie highlighting an unsung hero whose cancer cells were the source of the HeLa cell line which contributed to many medical breakthroughs of our time, including the polio vaccine. The movie stars my BFF, Oprah Winfrey, as Lacks' daughter, and Tony winner Renee Elise Goldsberry of Hamilton fame. After watching this movie and having finally seen Hidden Figures, I've become obsessed with uncovering the stories of other female heroines whose contributions are not as well known but have still made an impact. The movie was aching to be a multi-part mini-series instead of the too-short format it was afforded, and which suffocated the story. Nevertheless, the history is significant enough to cause further study on the subject.
Below are other links that I think are great this Monday. Have a fabulous week!
