Original Comic: Too Much Water, Not Enough Water

Laurie Bertram Roberts, Cynthia Greenlee & Jaz Malone

A comic about a city water crisis you probably haven't heard about.

The water woes of Flint, Michigan, have made headlines since 2015, when dangerously high levels of lead were discovered in the municipal water supply. But it’s not just Flint. In Jackson, Mississippi, aging infrastructure means frequent water main breaks, unhealthy lead levels, orders to boil water before using, and even school cancellation. In this comic written by Laurie Bertram Roberts and illustrated by Jaz Malone, a real-life Jackson family recounts what it means to live without safe and consistent access to water.
