Film: American Revolutionary - The Evolution of Grace Lee Boggs - November 2

Students, staff, and faculty are invited to bring their lunches and to watch and discuss together the award-winning film American Revolutionary: The Evolution of Grace Lee Boggs.

Wednesday, November 2, from 12-2pm in Room 2e14.

Grace Lee Boggs, who was 100 years old when she died last year, was a Chinese American philosopher, writer, and activist in Detroit with a thick FBI file and an inspiring vision of what American revolution can be. Rooted for 75 years in the labor, civil rights, and Black Power movements, she challenged younger generations - for generations - to throw off old assumptions, think creatively, and redefine revolution. She embraced, practiced, and critiqued a variety of organizing models in her lifetime of activism.
