Film & Discussion: Something in the Water

Something in the Water: The Flint Water Crisis (NR, 43 mins, 2016, English)
Part of the series, America Divided by filmmakers Lucian Read, Richard Rowley, and Solly Granatstein
Film is available to stream through Kanopy here.
 
Watch the film in our Salem Family Auditorium, and then join in the post-film discussion.
 
Part of the 2019 Reading Across Rhode Island program. This year's title is What the Eyes Don't See by Mona Hanna-Attisha, which is available to borrow here.
 
"While most people are aware of the basic contours of the Flint water story, AMERICA DIVIDED goes deeper. Correspondent Rosario Dawson investigates how a government could poison its own citizens, what hidden forces may have been at work, and how specific policies unique to Michigan, led not only to the crisis in Flint but also damaged other poor, largely African American communities around the state." (from Kanopy's website)
 
Free and open to all.
