A tribute to Henrietta Lacks, Immortal is the real business project developed by the spring class of 2020. The Legendary Henrietta Lacks is a Black woman whose cells were taken from her in 1951 as she was being treated for cervical cancer at John Hopkins. She died shortly after, but her cells are still alive today.

For decades, mental health in the Black Community has always been taboo. The goal of the Light a Candle project is to shine a light on mental health in the Black Community. This initiative helps build the foundation of being able to heal, grow, have peaceful and fruitful relationships.
