This week, I returned to Detroit as I have every few years. On Thursday, I visited the James and Grace Lee Boggs School and heard of the influence Grace had in founding a school that is deeply rooted in community. On Friday, I visited the Boggs Center and talked to board members about their perceptions of displacement, water shut-offs, and community power in Detroit.
And I had a chance to sit with Grace, hold her hand, and bring our greetings from YES!
“I’m tired,” she told me.
