This five-part video series features a conversation between four Detroit Organizers, Grace Lee Boggs, Shea Howell, adrienne maree brown, and Jenny Lee, facilitated by Adela Nieves Martinez. As organizers rooted in work in Detroit, they see the connections between the local and the global. Though they represent different backgrounds, generations, and organizing experiences, each is committed to building collaborative movements and alternative systems.
This series was released in September 2010 and held at the Boggs Center. The 10-year anniversary series was also held at the Boggs Center with Dr. Gloria House (Mama Aneb), Shea Howell, Jenny Lee, Tawana Petty and adrienne maree brown, and was released in December 2020.
