You say you want a revolution?

“American Revolutionary: Meet Grace Lee Boggs” is a documentary from PBS (the public TV network in the US). It’s about a 99-year-old Chinese-American philosopher and activist “with a thick FBI file”. This video is an approximately 7 minute clip from it.

Unfortunately, the whole hour-long version is not available in Japan, but some of the shorter clips, including a trailer for the movie and an interview with the filmmaker (whose name, coincidentally, is also Grace Lee) are available.

She’s an amazing and very determined woman, and the film excerpt and the interview with the filmmaker are both very informative and inspiring.
