Grace Lee Boggs
Grace Lee Boggs, 94, has lived in Detroit since 1953, most of that time in the same house. Over the past seventy years, she has been a part of almost every major movement in the United States. She writes a weekly column for the Michigan Citizen.
Detroit stands as a symbol of the destruction deindustrialization left in its wake, but new initiatives in the Midwestern city have made it a leader in sustainable living, and have laid the foundations for the next great American revolution.
