Grace Lee Boggs is a 98-year-old Chinese American woman, writer, activist, and philosopher rooted for more than 70 years in the African American movement. This film 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. Revolution, Boggs says, is about something deeper within the human experience – the ability to transform oneself to transform the world.
