What does it mean to be an American revolutionary today? Grace Lee Boggs is a 99-year-old Chinese American woman in Detroit whose vision and revolution may surprise you. A writer, activist, and philosopher connected to the African American movement for more than 70 years, Grace Lee Boggs has devoted her life to an evolving revolution that encompasses the contradictions of America’s past and its potentially radical future. This new award-winning 83 minute documentary directed by filmmaker Grace Lee plunges us into Boggs’ lifelong practice of igniting community dialogue and action, work that traverses the major U.S. social movements of the last century–from labor to civil rights, Black Power, feminism, the Asian American and environmental justice movements and beyond.
