Star Performances: Something the Lord Made

Tuesday, Apr 10, 2018 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Something The Lord Made stars Alan Rickman, Mos Def, Mary Stuart Masterson, Kyra Sedgwick and Charles Dutton, and tells the story of an unusual partnership at the Johns Hopkins Hospital between one of the nation’s pioneering surgeons, Alfred Blalock, and his young African-American lab assistant, Vivien Thomas. Coming of age in different worlds, they nevertheless forged a relationship to develop the so-called Blue Baby operation and usher in a golden age of heart surgery. The operation, which surgically corrected a congenital defect of the heart known as the Tetralogy of Fallot, broke the last barrier to operating directly on the heart, long considered taboo and an impossibility.
