Be sure to not only answer the question but center your response around the ethical issues in the book.

In 1976, when Mike Rogers’s Rolling Stone article was printed, many viewed it about a story of race (see pg. 197). How do you think public interpretation might have been different if the piece would have been written at the time of her death in 1951? How is this different from the way her story is being interpreted today? How do you think Henrietta’s experiences with the medical system would have been different if she were a white woman?
