Henrietta (6:49)

The Henrietta Songfacts reports this track was inspired by Henrietta Lacks, an African-American woman from Baltimore, who died in 1951 from a rare form of cancer. Her tumors and cells continued to live and grow after she passed away and the subsequent research resulted in the remarkably durable HeLa cell line, named for her first and last initials.
