Grace Lee Boggs, the sistah from another mother who knew the score
Activist Grace Lee Boggs
Grace and her husband James
Civil Rights activist, community activist, environmentalist and supporter of causes ameliorating the human condition has died at 100 years of age in her Detroit home. Born in Providence, Rhode Island, above the restaurant that her father, Chin Lee, owned and to Yin Lan Lee, his second wife, a feminist role model for the young Grace. A contemporary of Malcolm X, she failed in persuading him in running for the U. S. Senate. An outlier, a dreamer, a warrior. She was a force.
Grace Lee Boggs June 27, 1915 - October 5, 2015
