Listen to Grace Lee Boggs' speech on "Love and {r}evolution" at the Jane Addams Hull-House Museum

This event celebrated the birthdays of Jane Addams and the Keynote Speaker Grace Lee Boggs.

Grace Lee Boggs is an activist, writer, and speaker whose more than sixty years of political involvement encompass the major U.S. social movements of this century: Labor, Civil Rights, Black Power, Asian-American, Women’s, and Environmental Justice. Grace was the Keynote Speaker for the annual Jane Addams Birthday Conversation on Peace and Justice. Her talk is entitled “Love and {r}evolution.”

In addition to celebrating and honoring the birthday of Jane Addams, Hull House also celebrated Grace’s 94th birthday and her tremendous commitment to social justice and making our world a more just and democratic one. Every year, Hull-House takes the opportunity on Jane Addams birthday to celebrate its progressive tradition, but also offers an opportunity to look forward and cross various boundaries to bring together people working on issues of peace broadly defined.

This event was co-sponsored by The Public Square at the Illinois Humanities Council.

Recorded Thursday, September 10, 2009 at Jane Addams Hull-House Museum.
