The Evolution of Grace Lee Boggs
FRI June 27 | 6-9PM
The Jane Addams Hull-House Museum is thrilled to host the Chicago premiere screening ofAmerican Revolutionary: The Evolution of Grace Lee Boggs.
The film screening is less than 1 week away! Please join us for this special occasion, which includes a dialogue and catered dinner from Irazu Costa Rican Dining.
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.
Inspired by Boggs’ (and Addams’) visions for cross-issue collaboration and participatory leadership, we’ve invited organizers, community members, scholars, artists and cultural workers to the event. Post-screening discussion, facilitated by The World Cafe, invites participants to transcend traditional boundaries of movement building and explore new forms of radical work in the city of Chicago.
Space is very limited. If intending to join, please visit the required reservation link:americanrevolutionaryscreening.eventbrite.com
Hull-House is presenting the screening along with our partners Active Voice, POV and The World Cafe and hopes the event will spark efforts to carry forward Boggs’ vision and advance justice for all.
