WOC Wednesday: Grace Lee Boggs

Today, I’m honoring a very important person in the fight for racial and social equality, Grace Lee Boggs!

Boggs has been a social activist for decades, having been involved in various grassroots and black power initiatives. She’s also the subject of the documentary American Revolution: The Evolution of Grace Lee Boggs, which has recently been awarded a Peabody Award. The film is currently available for free viewing on PBS until May 24. But for right here, here’s the trailer.

I will actually interview the documentarian behind this film, Grace Lee, this week, so stay on the lookout for my interview with her.
