Good Evening everyone, tonight The African American Biography Series presents the biographies of Henrietta Lacks and Dr. Charles Richard Drew.  Henrietta Lacks died in 1951 due to a cancerous tumor.  Her cancerous cells were removed from her body and it was discovered that those cells were actually duplicating themselves outside of Henrietta's body.  The life of Henrietta Lacks has been immortal for years due to the live cells from her body reproducing themselves and being used to this day for medical research.  This is a little known medical phenomenon.  Dr. Charles Richard Drew was an American physician, surgeon, and medical researcher.  He researched in the field of blood transfusions, developing improved techniques for blood storage, and applied his expert knowledge to developing large-scale blood banks early in World War II .  This allowed medics to save thousands of lives of the Allied Forces.  The purpose of The African American Biography Series of 2013 is to document Black History on Internet Radio, Blogtalkradio.  You Talk Too Much, my talk show, is a featured show on Blogtalkradio.  I'm your host Laura Gall.  My show airs every Thursday evening at 6:30 pm-7 pm Eastern time.  My call in number is 1-714-242-5273.  Please call in and let's chat about tonight's topic.  Thank you for listening.
