One of my favorite activists of all time is Grace Lee Boggs from Detroit, MI. She died two years ago in Detroit, MI. She was 100 years old. In the past few weeks with all the chaos and heartbreak going on in our world, I have been finding comfort in Grace Lee Boggs and her words.
I would recommend to all people the book “The Next American Revolution Sustainable Activism for the 21st Century” it is a profound text with numerous ways that we can resist and uplift our current world. Grace Lee Boggs had a profound focus on community involvement throughout her life and within her activism. This includes knowing your neighbors, calling government officials, starting urban gardens, and focusing on educating children beyond the classroom…just to give a few examples.
If reading is not doable for you right now, due to time or anything else, I would recommend watching the movie “American Revolutionary: The Evolution Of Grace Lee Boggs” or listening to one of the many podcasts she was featured in. Here is one of my favorites.
I hope whoever reads this engages with Grace Lee Boggs and her wisdom, and finds some peace from her.
