The final posting by Grace Lee Boggs on the Boggs Center website.
“I want my life to challenge people to think philosophically. I want people to ask themselves and each other what time it is on the clock of the world.”

The Next American Revolution: Sustainable Activism for the Twenty-first Century
"A world dominated by America and driven by cheap oil, easy credit, and conspicuous consumption is unraveling before our eyes. Drawing from seven decades of movement-building experience, Grace Lee Boggs shows how to create the radical social change we need to confront new realities. From her home in Detroit, she reveals how hope and creativity are overcoming despair and decay within the most devastated urban communities."
