The HLLG Annual Luncheon raises funds for the creation of a wax figure of Henrietta Lacks and the Henrietta Lacks Scholarship Endowment at the Community College of Baltimore County. It also offers a venue to share insights on Mrs. Lacks and to honor Turner Station residents, former residents, and friends for contributions made to the legacy of Henrietta Lacks or that of historic Turner Station. Mrs. Lacks, by all accounts, is a figure whose reach is global. Extending the legacy of this very important African American woman does much to combat the historical erasure that befalls so many of our important historical figures.
