Grace Lee Boggs and Scott Kurashige in conversation about Detroit, post-industrial America and radical activism in the 21st century
My first encounter with Grace Lee Boggs in 1998 was an unmistakable turning point in my life. I was a graduate student at UCLA and had been doing activist work for a decade. Her autobiography, Living for Change (1998), had just been published. I was especially interested in her deep connection to the African American community, and I was impressed by her extensive and long-standing ties to radical movements and Marxist theory.
