From NOVA on PBS, “Poisoned Water” investigates what happened in Flint, Michigan when local officials changed the city’s water source to save money, but overlooked a critical treatment process and exposed the community—including thousands of children—to dangerous levels of poison. Is there a way forward from chaos to community? Join the conversation as MSU Libraries and WKAR present the final installment in this MLK commemorative film series for 2022.
