Performer/Participant Interviewer: Kae Halonen
Summary Grace Lee Boggs was interviewed by Kae Halonen as part of the Motor City Voices Project. She was one of the most significant activist intellectuals to participate in the turbulent late 1960s in Detroit. She became an editor for the Correspondence, a publication exploring the limits of Marxist theory. She met Jimmy Boggs, a prolific political writer himself. They were married in 1953 and moved to Detroit where they collaborated on the Manifesto for a Black Revolutionary Party, which was presented at the National Black Economic Conference, and was an influential document for the League of Revolutionary Black Workers. Convinced that it was not sufficient to organize only at the point of production, Boggs expanded the scope of her political work through groups like Gardening Angels, which works with inner-city youth in Detroit. Working together with members of the Boggs Center, she actively promotes alternative models for sustainable economies
