3940 Broadway @ Dr. Betty Shabazz Way
This story of 98-year-old Chinese American writer, activist, and philosopher Grace Lee Boggs has been instilling a renewed belief that change is possible in social justice champions around the country. A visionary who has been rooted in the African American movement in Detroit for more than 70 years, Boggs has devoted her life to a vision of revolution that will surprise you.
Join us on June 24th for a screening of American Revolutionary, followed immediately by a World Café inspired dialogue about the film and local concerns.
In a time when important work can get trapped within issue silos, this event is designed to bring together social justice activists for conversations that break those boundaries and support sustainable cross-issue collaborations locally. The Shabazz Center hopes this event will spark efforts to carry forward Boggs’ vision and advance justice for all.
