As CPA celebrates our 40th anniversary this year, we are excited to begin 2012 by honoring the legacy of an Asian American movement shero, Grace Lee Boggs. We will co-host a very special event, “Building the Next American Revolution: A Celebration and Tribute to Grace Lee Boggs,” which will take place on Saturday, March 3rd, 2012 at the Chinese Culture Center in San Francisco Chinatown from 1-4 pm, with a reception and book signing.
This event will feature Grace Lee Boggs, who will reflect on Asian American activism and our movement during the current political times and key issues affecting the world today.
Born in 1915 to Chinese immigrants, Grace is a long-time activist and writer who has committed over 70 years of her life to building a movement for social change. She is a legendary figure in the civil rights and Black power movement. Now 96, she continues to devote her life to developing new young leaders and a vision for the 21st century.
The program will also include cultural performances, long-time friend and actor Danny Glover and Scott Kurashige, Professor of American culture and history and co-author of her book, “the Next American Revolution: Sustainable Activism for the Twenty-First Century.
