This year’s inspirational read is “What the Eyes Don’t See: A Story of Crisis, Resistance, and Hope in an American City” by Mona Hanna-Attisha. The book chronicles Dr. Mona’s relentless pursuit to uncover the contamination of Flint, Michigan’s drinking water, which would lead to her testifying in front of Congress. Gripping and emotional, Dr. Mona’s personal account reads like a scientific thriller as she vividly recounts the effects lead poisoning had on her young patients and the evidence she gathered to share with the world.

Understanding

ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE

in the Face of Injustice

A One Maryland One Book and Maryland Humanities Program

This talk provides a broader critical context for Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha’s “What the Eyes Don’t See.” Throughout the book, Dr. Hanna- Attisha returns to D.H. Lawrence’s adage, “The eyes don’t see what the mind doesn’t know” as she works to uncover lead poisoning of Flint, Michigan. By understanding “environmental justice”-- as a social movement and field of study-- we can better train our minds to see how social and environmental inequalities intertwine, and also ways to effectively fight for “our political, economic and cultural liberation.” Dr. Shane Hall of Salisbury University discusses why some people are exposed to high levels of pollution or don’t have access to clean water, while others enjoy green spaces and nutritious food.
