“Hiding in the Walls” Documentary & Discussion, Wed, July 10, Noon – 1:30 p.m.

Join the HSHSL for a screening and group discussion of “Hiding in the Walls,” a documentary that explores the fraught history of lead’s government-mandated use in low-income housing in Baltimore. The film delves into how lead poisoning became an accepted norm in urban America and follows adult survivors on a mission to reclaim the narrative.

The film will be shown on July 10 at noon on the HSHSL’s second floor, followed by a discussion from 1 – 1:30 p.m. Feel free to view the film in advance and join us for the Q&A, or come for the entire event. The documentary is free to view using your UMid and password or public library card to log in. Space is limited, so registration is required.

While you are in the library enjoy our exhibit, This Lead is Killing Us: A History of Citizens Fighting Lead Poisoning in Their Communities. The National Library of Medicine produced this exhibition and companion website.
