The Context of White Supremacy welcomes Anna Clark. A Detroit, Michigan journalist and author, Clark was a Fulbright fellow in Nairobi, Kenya, and a Knight-Wallace journalism fellow at the University of Michigan, and she was awarded the Excellence in Environmental Journalism award from the Great Lakes Environmental Law Council. We’ll discuss her 2018 publication The Poisoned City, which investigates the years of deception and suffering of the Flint, Michigan lead poisoning. The predominantly black Michigan city attempted to alert White officials for years to the unsafe and hazardous water conditions. They were ignored, rebuffed and lied to. Years after the name “Flint” has become globally synonymous with lead-poisoned water, no one has been held criminally liable for the catastrophe and it’s still controversial as to whether or not the water is safe to drink. Adding insult to injury, the 2020 global coronavirus has resulted in unprecedented measures to ensure the health and well-being of all citizens. This includes a halt to evictions in numerous regions around the planet, as well as a halt to water shutoffs. White officials have devised all manner of imaginative schemes to ensure that everyone has access to water. We’ll ask Ms. Clark why this attitude couldn’t have been adopted years ago.
