Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha, What the Eyes Don't See - Osborn College Preparatory Academy - Detroit

Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha discusses her role in uncovering the tragic disaster of the Flint water crisis. Questions and book signing follow.“Here is the inspiring story of how Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha, alongside a team of researchers, parents, friends, and community leaders, discovered that the children of Flint, Michigan, were being exposed to lead in their tap water—and then battled her own government and a brutal backlash to expose that truth to the world. … At the center of the story is Dr. Mona herself—an immigrant, doctor, scientist, and mother whose family’s activist roots inspired her pursuit of justice.” – Penguin Random House, publisher Michigan Humanities’ Great Michigan Read creates a statewide discussion around the humanities themes of a selected book. Through partnerships with libraries, schools, book clubs, and a wide range of other non-profit organizations, the Great Michigan Read facilitates statewide reading and programs to bridge communities around a common conversation. Partners for this event are Wilder Branch of the Detroit Public Library and Osborne High School.
