Storyboard Description

Up until this point, the Lackses have no clue that their mothers cells are still living and that other people are using them for their own benefits. On this day the Lackses world changes, and for this moment in time we enter the side of speaking out for Henrietta, whose voice now lies in the hands of her children. This scene can be found in chapter 23, It's Alive. The scene in which I am making my storyboard about is when, "Bobbette Lacks sat at her friend Gardenia's dining room table. Gardenia's brother in law was in town from Washington, D.C., and they'd all just finished having lunch" (179).
