To close out Women's History Month (and in honor of the radical origins of International Women's Day), we are spotlighting legendary Detroit activist Grace Lee Boggs. Though not a poet in the traditional sense, Grace is a powerful writer and speaker whose work is grounded in the transformations of ideas and actions that the best poems are made of. Grace has been a participant in nearly every major social movement of the last 7 decades and at 95 years old, she just published a new book entitled "The Next American Revolution: Sustainable Activism for the Twenty-First Century." Today, let's listen to her words at 91-years young: "we are the leaders we've been looking for."
