Grace Lee Boggs, 98, is a Chinese American philosopher, writer and activist in Detroit with a thick FBI file and a surprising vision of what an American revolution can be. Rooted in 75 years of the labor, civil rights and Black Power movements, she continually challenges a new generation to throw off old assumptions, think creatively and redefine revolution for our times. Boggs is the subject of POV's American Revolutionary: The Evolution of Grace Lee Boggs, which airs Monday, June 30, 2014 at 10 p.m. on WXXI-TV.
