Stephen Henderson and the Detroit Todayteam invite you to read Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha’s ”What The Eyes Don’t See: A Story of Crisis, Resistance, and Hope in American City.”
The book dives into Dr. Attisha’s story in contributing to the discovery of elevated lead levels in Flint’s public water infrastructure. Throughout the summer, Detroit Today will lead a community-wide discussion on the story of Flint and how it’s affected the country’s views on infrastructure, justice and the relationship between state and local government.
And now, you can join us in that discussion. We are traveling to libraries around the region with guests who played a role in the book. They will tell their own stories about their involvement in the Flint water crisis, and we’ll invite local experts to talk about issues affecting our water in each community.
Join us for a conversation at the St. Clair Shores Public Library featuring Detroit Free Press columnist Nancy Kaffer, lifelong friend of Dr. Mona Hanna Attisha, Elin Betanzo, and former EPA worker and founder of Safe Water Engineering and St. Clair Shores District 8 Director, David Fischer.
Currently reading: "What The Eyes Don't See: The Story of Crisis, Resistance, and Hope in an American City" by Dr. Mona-Hanna Attisha. Read the book and engage with us online, on the radio and at events throughout the region.
