Honoring an American Revolutionary: A Celebration and Fundraiser for Grace Lee Boggs

Please join us as we celebrate and help raise funds for Grace Lee Boggs on March 4th at Penumbra Theatre in St Paul!

Grace Lee Boggs is an Asian American social activist, writer, philosopher, and feminist who focused her efforts on women and people of color for over seven decades, specifically the struggles of the African American community during the Civil Rights Movement and Black Power Movement.

Grace Lee Boggs is now 99 in hospice care and in need of assistance. Come join us for a night honoring the contributions of Grace Lee Boggs with a film screening of “American Revolutionary: The Evolution of Grace Lee Boggs” and a silent auction! This event will also be an opportunity to promote community and facilitate discussion. In the face of present injustices, an event like this – in addition to others that have been occurring throughout the Twin Cities – can help build our communities’ strength and voice by bringing us together in celebration and in action.
