On Monday, centenarian Grace Lee Boggs passed. She was a familiar voice on KPFA airwaves, inspiring us with her fierce and compassionate wisdom. Her genius was forged from decades of tireless activism in civil rights, anti-racism, labor organizing, environmental justice and feminism.Grace Lee Boggs inspired (and will continue to inspire) millions of organizers, thinkers and leaders. Here’s an APEX Express tribute to this wonderful leader, philosopher, revolutionary, and teacher, who showed us that is indeed possible to walk your talk.
Search apexexpress.org to find a number of interviews we conducted with her during her visits to the Bay Area. Thank you to Preeti Shekar, Sabiha Basrai and Ellen Choy for this tribute.
