The Evolution of Grace Lee Boggs
Thu, Jan 8, 2015 from 7pm – 9pm
Admission: FREE and open to the public.
Grace Lee Boggs is a 99-year-old Chinese American woman in Detroit whose vision of revolution will surprise you. A writer, activist, and philosopher rooted for more than 70 years in the African American movement, she has devoted her life to an evolving revolution that encompasses the contradictions of America’s past and its potentially radical future. The documentary film, American Revolutionary: The Evolution of Grace Lee Boggs, plunges us into Boggs’s lifetime of vital thinking and action, traversing the major U.S. social movements of the last century; from labor to civil rights, to Black Power, feminism, the Asian American and environmental justice movements and beyond.
American Revolutionary: The Evolution of Grace Lee Boggs is produced and directed by Grace Lee.
This event is a collaboration with POV, the award-winning independent non-fiction film series on PBS.
