FIVE NIGHTS TOWARD FREEDOM: POISONED WATER
Join the conversation as MSU Libraries and WKAR present the final installment in this MLK commemorative film series for 2022. 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?
Five Nights Toward Freedom is a partnership between WKAR Public Media and MSU Libraries. Presented as part of MSU Martin Luther King Jr. Commemorative Celebration 2022: Chaos or Community

In this special report, NOVA investigates what happened in Flint, Michigan when local officials changed the city’s water source to save money, but overlooked a critical treatment process. As the water pipes corroded, lead leached into the system, exposing the community—including thousands of children—to dangerous levels of poison. NOVA uncovers the science behind this manmade disaster.
