In 1922 every member country of The League of Nations signed a ban on lead-based paint, except one: The United States. Hiding in the Walls reveals a devastating public health disaster that began with under-regulation, continues through institutionalized policies, and reverberates as a root cause for myriad health and social issues. Looking at Baltimore as a particularly illustrative example of lead's contemporary status and impacts, Hiding in the Walls makes clear that this problem remains ubiquitous and unaddressed in communities throughout the country.
