    Cinema Club Special Screening - American Revolutionary: The Evolution of Grace Lee Boggs
    We are bringing cinema club home to campus with this film screening at the NYU Cantor Film Center. Join the Program Board, the MCAA, speakers from NYU Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute and the Boggs Center for this free film screening. As Grace approaches her 100th birthday, join us in a celebration of her life and her legacy. To RSVP for this event, email with your name and the name of this event.

    What does it mean to be an American revolutionary today? Grace Lee Boggs is a 98-year-old Chinese American woman in Detroit whose vision of revolution may surprise you. A writer, activist, and philosopher rooted for more than 70 years in the African American movement, she has devoted her life to an evolving revolution that encompasses the contradictions of America’s past and its potentially radical future.This new award-winning 83 minute documentary directed by filmmaker Grace Lee plunges us into Bogg's lifelong practice of igniting community dialogue and action, work that traverses the major U.S. social movements of the last century: from labor to civil rights, to Black Power, feminism, the Asian American and environmental justice movements and beyond.
