Why Don't We Hear About Grace Lee Boggs?

Some how in enjoying a web page about Langston Hughes, I found another about Grace Lee Boggs.

This woman was born in Providence, and is now 94 and 1/2 years old.

The James & Grace Lee Boggs Center looks like a pretty wonderful place.

There is a film being made about this woman's life, and a facebook page, Grace Lee Boggs: A Work in Progress

She is known internationally, but a search in the Providence Journal reveals not one article.

I understand, she lives in Michigan, but we have claimed people who have done much less, and live far further away.

And Belated Happy Birthday to Langston Hughes!
