American Revolutionary: The Evolution of Grace Lee Boggs

Organised as part of Glasgow's May Day celebrations, PEN Scotland is excited to be able to offer a showing of the film American Revolutionary: The Evolution of Grace Lee Boggs 

The film plunges us into Boggs’s lifetime of vital thinking and action, traversing the major U.S. social movements of the last century: from labour to civil rights, to Black Power, feminism, the Asian American and environmental justice movements and beyond. Boggs’s constantly evolving strategy – her willingness to re-evaluate and change tactics in relation to the world shifting around her – drives the story forward.

More about Grace Lee Boggs and the Boggs Center...


The mission of the James and Grace Lee Boggs School is to nurture the transformational leadership capacities of individuals and organizations committed to creating just, productive, conscious, and ecologically sustainable communities. It is largely down to the work and vision of the late James and Grace Lee Boggs which has driven forward the school, alongside the Boggs Center.


PEN Scotland are delighted to have an ongoing relationship with the James and Grace Lee Boggs School stretching back to 2020.
