The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot, began as an investigation of a medical miracle but became a poignant story about racism, shoddy scientific ethics and a family's painful experiences with both.  Henrietta Lacks, was a poor Southern tobacco farmer who died from cervical cancer in 1951.  Her cells, known to present-day scientists as HeLa, were taken without her knowledge and used for research for decades after her death.
