American Revolutionary: The Evolution of Grace Lee Boggs
Grace Lee, 2013, 82 min
When we think of the Civil Rights Movement, we tend to overlook leaders like 98 year-old Chinese American Grace Lee Boggs. As an activist, writer and philosopher, Boggs was not only deep in the trenches during the Civil Rights Movement, but continues to be a pivotal figure in minority rights to this day. Much of Boggs' work has centered on Detroit and the racial discrimination that plagued the city.

As she wrestles with a Detroit in ongoing transition, Boggs emerges with an approach that is radical in its simplicity and clarity: revolution is not an act of aggression or merely a protest. Revolution, Boggs says, is about something deeper within the human experience  the ability to transform oneself in order to transform the world. In an age when seemingly insurmountable injustices and contradictions face us, American Revolutionary inspires concerned citizens and dreamers of all ages with new thinking to sustain their struggle and engagement.

Angela Davis, Bill Moyers, Bill Ayers, Ruby Dee, Ossie Davis, Danny Glover, Boggs's late husband James Boggs and a host of Detroit comrades across three generations help shape this uniquely American story.

Skype Q&A with director Grace Lee followed by a reception.
