This week, I gave an interview on the disastrous Jackson Water Crisis. Radio Host, Dr. E. Faye Williams invited me to join her show, ‘Wake Up and Stay Woke, to discuss the dreadful dilemma Jackson residents endured. The city’s residents, who are 80% Black, had no running water for seven (7) days. Although the water pressure has been restored, the mayor says this is only a temporary solution for the 150,000 residents. For now, FEMA officials, the mayor, and governor are in communication about how to move forward. The full interview is available on the radio station’s website, but this clip lets you hear a segment of the show. https://youtube.com/shorts/LIyz7232TYk?feature=share
