Assignment Instructions

Please educate yourself about the Flint, Michigan lead Water Crisis that occurred in 2014 (look up an article or two) and present a Marxist class analysis of the water crisis. Your paper should have three main parts: (1) explain the issue with the water crisis first, perhaps adding information about the demographics of Flint, Michigan; (2) explain Marxist’s two-class analysis (hint: bourgeoisie & proletariat); and (3) present an analysis of the Flint Water Crisis from a Marxist class perspective.

Use at least two academic sources from our readings or our library in addition to the Flint Water Crisis articles, which may be retrieved from any news source on the Internet.

Your paper should be in APA format, in 11 point font, with 1” margins. Your paper should be 4-6 pages of text, not counting any title page, abstract page, or references. Be sure to reference the articles you use for the Flint Water Crisis too. All references should be in APA format.
