Sponsored by Community-Based Learning and the Adult Learner Club- What does it mean to be an AMERICAN REVOLUTIONARY today? Grace Lee Boggs, a Chinese American woman in Detroit, who died in October 2015 at 100 years old, has a surprising vision of revolution. A writer, activist, and philosopher rooted for more than 70 years in the African American movement, she devoted her life to an evolving revolution that encompassed the contradictions of America’s past and its potentially radical future. This Peabody Award-winning documentary plunges us into Boggs’ lifelong practice of igniting community dialogue and action, work that traverses the major U.S. social movements of the last century: from labor to civil rights, to Black Power, feminism, the Asian American and environmental justice movements and beyond.

Will be rescheduled as we wait for jury deliberations.

Inver Hills Paralegal Instructor and Deputy Director of Community Relations for Ramsey County Community Corrections, Chris Crutchfield will help to provide perspective of the goings on in the court room with trial of Derick Chauvin. NOTE: if you have specific questions for Christopher Crutchfield please send to: ccrutchfield@inverhills.edu. For more information contact: Monica Ibarra mibarra@inverhills.edu .
