Talk about this amazing project and how you got involved.
Renée Elise Goldsberry: I got involved … I don’t know how I got involved. I got an email one day from George C. Wolfe that says, “You need to play Henrietta Lacks in my film, and have you read the book? Astonishing.” And I was like, “Oh my God! George C. Wolfe wants to work with me? Yes.” And, “No, I haven’t read the book. I’m going to read it right now.” Oh, I’ve read it! I’ve read it since then! Oh my goodness! I’ve read it several times. But this was my discovery of this woman and I’m grateful that I know who she is now.
