Earlier this week Tom McFadden released the latest effort in his Science with Tom project. This song features students from the KIPP Bridge school in Oakland, California, and chronicles the story of Henrietta Lacks and her family.
As noted at the end, Rebecca Skloot, the author of The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks features in the video. No word yet on who else from the forthcoming film project has heard the song. Could a version of this song end up on the movie soundtrack, a #HeLa mixtape? It’s a nice thought experiment to conduct before the movie comes out next year.
