We’re kicking off a new series of discussions on The Takeaway called "In My Experience." We'll be talking with older Americans who are long past retirement age, yet are nonetheless still looking to change how we live and work in this country. Philosopher and civil rights reformer Grace Lee Boggs joins us for the inaugural edition.
At 95 years old, Boggs has spent most of her life fighting social and economic injustice alongside famous activists like Martin Luther King and Malcolm X. Today, she is still active in the social justice movement in her adopted hometown of Detroit, Michigan — even though she’s in her tenth decade of life. She’s also the author of a new book, “The Next American Revolution: Sustainable Activism for the 21st Century.”
