Then, get inspired by local activist Grace Lee Boggs. "Most Americans have a very short-range idea of history," Boggs said recently. The long-range perspective that Boggs brings is that of an activist-philosopher, who steps back to see mass production as a 100-year-old enterprise, capitalism as a few hundred years old, and a city like Detroit in the context of evolution. A one-time associate of Marxist philosopher C.L.R. James, a Detroiter for more than half a century, Boggs' books "Living for Change: An Autobiography" and more recently "The Next American Revolution" have energized activists to think about our cities in fresh ways, to ask how we "rebuild, redefine, and respirit them as models of twenty-first century, self-reliant and sustainable multicultural communities."
The lunch will take place at the Detroit cultural gem known as Cliff Bell's. Located just blocks away from the convention hotel, Cliff Bell's is like taking a step back into Detroit's storied past. Behold the 1930's charm of the lavish, art-deco interior while dining on a delectable catered buffet of French-inspired fare.
