This week on DPTV, don’t miss “The Door Flint Opened: America’s Drinking Water Crisis,” A Great Lakes Now Special, on Thursday, November 1st at 9pm.
In this debut of the DPTV Great Lakes Bureau’s series of half-hour specials, GreatLakesNow.org examines how the Flint Water Crisis is shining a light on global water issues. We interview pediatrician Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha, who wrote the book “What the Eyes Don’t See: A Story of Crisis, Resistance, and Hope in an American City,” and journalist Anna Clark, who authored “The Poisoned City: Flint’s Water and the American Urban Tragedy.”
Through these authors’ words and a journey to Flint, viewers will learn the background of the crisis and where it stands today. Then we venture to the Society of Environmental Journalists annual conference – this year held in Flint — where we interview journalists, residents, scholars, and advocates about the impact of Flint’s Water Crisis on how journalists cover water issues and how policymakers make important decisions involving the safety of drinking water.
“The Door Flint Opened; America’s Drinking Water Crisis” airs on DPTV’s Channel 56 WTVS at 9 pm on Thursday, November 1st.
