Americans are ready for a fundamental change. Not a change of who gets to exercise power over others or a change in the material abundance available to us, but an evolution of humanity. This is the message that legendary philosopher, activist and community organizer Grace Lee Boggs delivers in her new book The Next American Revolution: Sustainable Activism for The Twenty-first Century, written with University of Michigan Associate Professor Scott Kurashige.

In this video, shot at The Brecht Forum in New York City on April 15, Boggs and Kurashige join Democracy Now!‘s Amy Goodman to explain the details of this vision for an alternative society.
