"Grace Lee Boggs [is] one of the great freedom fighters in the history of this nation…

a revolutionary in spirit, heart, and mind." -Cornel West

Grace's incredible spirit existed on earth for a hundred years. She was born in Rhode Island of Chinese parents. She earned a Ph.D. and moved to Chicago where she met and later collaborated with C.L.R. James, the author of the masterpiece, BLACK JACOBINS. Grace also collaborated with her husband, James Boggs. They moved to Detroit to carry out progressive civil rights and Black Power politics. They wrote some books together including Revolution and Evolution in the Twentieth Century. James died in 1993, and Grace carried on the struggle until she died in 2015.
