Through Babson College's Glavin Global Fellows Program, Melissa Denizard traveled to Flint, MI to film a docuseries called, "How to Celebrate Thanksgiving Without Clean Water"; in Flint, she analyzed how and why an American city with a primarily poor Black population was thrust into the Flint Water Crisis. In Flint, Melissa spent time with residents - families, community leaders, and politicians - and interviewed them about their living situation, the city's current socio-political climate, and their thoughts on how the city will move forward from the Flint Water Crisis and decades of poverty. On February 20th from 5 - 7 PM in Winn Auditorium, Melissa will be showcasing her documentary and hosting a panel featuring three of Flint's residents. Along with the great conversation this film will ignite about wealth inequity in the United States, it will also touch upon Flint's opportunity to utilize social entrepreneurship to accumulate wealth.
