Grace Lee Boggs: 100

American hero, the indomitable Grace Lee Boggs is 100 today–and for more than three quarters of a century, with a literal belief in the promises made by our Constitution, she has been fighting for civil rights, equality.

Boggs, brilliant and indefatigable, still an activist and philosopher in her beloved Detroit, says of her remarkable life and work (she published her most recent book,”The Next American Revolution: Sustainable Activism for the Twenty-First Century” in 2011), “I have endured and I have changed…ideas have their power because they’re not fixed.”

Today at 10:00 am The Boggs Center will participate in a peace demonstration, “Silence the Violence March,” organized by Church of the Messiah, 231 E. Grand Blvd., Detroit.

(And yesterday, with the Supreme Court decision declaring same-sex marriage a right, our nation, a work-in-progress, edged closer to keeping its promises.)

Grace Lee Boggs,
