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. Boggs’s constantly evolving strategy – her
willingness to re-evaluate and change tactics in relation to the world shifting around her – drives
the story forward. Angela Davis, Bill Moyers, Bill Ayers, Ruby Dee and Ossie Davis, Danny
Glover, Boggs’s late husband James and a host of Detroit comrades across three generations
help shape this uniquely American story. As she wrestles with a Detroit in ongoing transition,
contradictions of violence and non-violence, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, the 1967
rebellions, and non-linear notions of time and history, 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 to transform the world.
