Event Details

Please join us for the Marquette Forum Keyonte with Anna Clark, author from Detroit whose writings have appeared in Elle Magazine, The New York Times, Politico, Next City, and other publications. She was a correspondent for the Columbia Journalism Review as part of its United States Project for nearly five years, and received the 2017 Excellence in Environmental Journalism award from the Great Lakes Environmental Law Council. Ms. Clark will discuss her book The Poisoned City: Flint's Water and the American Urban Tragedy (Metropolitan Books, 2018), which has implications for every municipality in America (especially Milwaukee), and the inspiring role of Flint's "lionhearted residents," their grassroots activism, community organizing, and the independent investigations that brought the crisis to national attention.

About the Marquette Forum

For the 2018–19 academic year, Marquette University will engage in a yearlong series of events focusing on civic dialogue and the state of democracies across the world. Building on last year’s theme “Fractured: Health and Equity,” Forum events will engage students, faculty, staff and the communities making up greater Milwaukee in conversations around crucial questions including:

  • Is democracy in crisis?
  • Who gets to participate in a democracy?
  • What are the rights, responsibilities and privileges of citizenship?
  • What does democracy demand of its citizens?
  • What are the opportunities and responsibilities for non-citizens within a democratic system?
  • How would the “Founding Fathers” have envisioned civic engagement in the 21st-century?
  • How can Catholic social teachings contribute to democratic dialogues?
