Grace Lee Boggs has lived in Detroit since the 1950s, but her activist roots began in Chicago.

Grace Lee Boggs has been an activist for over half a century so she knows a thing or two about picking your battles. Boggs has worked on a variety of social issues: civil rights, labor, and environmental justice. At 95, she’s just published another book, The Next American Revolution.

She recently stopped by Eight Forty-Eight to reflect on her career and her efforts to redefine activism for today.
