National Geographic/Wayne Lawrence

On the next American Black Journal, hip hop mogul and philanthropist Russell Simmons talks about the devastating impact of the lead-contaminated water on Flint residents and what he's doing to continue to draw attention to the crisis.  And, a group of Michigan professional women of color is raising money to help the children of Flint. We'll get details on their star-studded fundraiser.  Plus, an international artist creates a public work in Detroit that pays tribute to the city's rich musical history.
