Bridge Magazine, The Center for Michigan, and Mission Point Press announce new book: Poison on Tap: How Government Failed Flint, and the Heroes Who Fought Back.
After decades of abandonment, the mostly African-American residents of Flint, Mich., had thought they’d lived through the worst of times. They were wrong.
After more than a year of discolored, foul-smelling water flowing from faucets, children falling ill with stomach ailments and skin rashes, and bureaucrats ridiculing residents’ pleas for relief, the truth finally — painfully — emerged.
Based on the award-winning journalism of Bridge Magazine, Poison on Tap provides a riveting, authoritative account of the government blunders, mendacity and arrogance that produced the lead-poisoned-water crisis in Flint, including:
The book features detailed reporting, graphics and photography by the staff of Bridge Magazine. It is edited by Bob Campbell, and published by Mission Point Press.
“Sometimes truth is stranger and scarier than fiction — and such is the case with the Flint water crisis. Bridge Magazine staff painstakingly documented one of the most significant cases of environmental injustice in U.S. history.” – Va. Tech Professor and Flint hero Mark Edwards
