Women's History Month film: THE EVOLUTION OF GRACE LEE BOGGS


March 16 (Thursday)
Women’s History Month film series: The Evolution of Grace Lee Boggs
5:30 p.m.

The Art Museum is proud to present a series of documentary films in March focused on the lives of four extraordinary women who have had global impact and whose legacies live on today: Nina Simone, Grace Lee Boggs, Eva Hesse, and Diana Vreeland.

Tonight’s film American Revolutionary: The Evolution of Grace Lee Boggs (84 minutes) plunges the viewer 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, Black Power, feminism, the Asian American and environmental justice movements, and beyond. 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. Revolution is not an act of aggression or merely a protest, Boggs says. Revolution is about something deeper within the human experience: the ability to transform oneself to transform the world.
