Just Conversations with Kelly Brown Douglas

Understanding the Flint Water Crisis

January 22, 2019

For this episode of EDS at Union NOW, Dean Kelly Brown Douglas speaks with the Rev. Dan Scheid, Rector of St. Paul's Episcopal Church in downtown Flint, Michigan. They discuss the Flint water crisis, how the community has worked together, and the Episcopal Church's response. 

The EDS at Union Spring Community Read is Anna Clark’s riveting book, The Poisoned City: Flint’s Water and the American Urban Tragedy. In this book, Flint is an example of a much broader story of American urban tragedy, and it is a story of poverty, race, and toxic environmental injustices that we all must learn as we seek to become effective community leaders.

Anna Clark will be on campus to discuss this pivotal book on Wednesday, January 30th at 6:00 pm EST. Click here to RSVP attend, or sign up for access to the live stream.
