Skloot’s first visit to Turner Station and the Henrietta Lacks Museum. Skloot says, “Courtney Speed in Turner Station was hoping to turn this building into a museum in Henrietta’s honor; I took this photograph to document the building, its location relative to the sign welcoming people to Turner Station, etc. I then took at least a roll of photos (if not more) documenting every inch of the building that I thought might be relevant someday in the future for describing it.” Photo courtesy of Rebecca Skloot.
