A video documentary produced as part of PBS' POV series in 2014, titled "American Revolutionary: The Evolution of Grace Lee Boggs". At the documentary page on the PBS site, you can watch the trailer, a slideshow, and find out more about Grace Lee Boggs and her books. 

From introduction to the video: Grace Lee Boggs, 99, is a Chinese American philosopher, writer, and activist in Detroit with a thick FBI file and a surprising vision of what an American revolution can be. Rooted for 75 years in the labor, civil rights and Black Power movements, she challenges a new generation to throw off old assumptions, think creatively and redefine revolution for our times.
