Womens Magazine – March 14, 2016

Today on Grace Lee Boggs Women’s Magazine we talk to Sam Lai and Margo Okazawa- Rey, two of the organizers of the upcoming 3 day event, “Celebrating Grace Lee Boggs: a Century of Love and Struggle.” Rooted for 75 years in the labor, civil rights and Black Power movements, Grace Lee Boggs challenged a new generation to throw off old assumptions, think creatively and redefine revolution for our times. On Friday March 18th through Sunday March 20th there will be three days of activities including airing of the documentary “American Revolutionary”, a celebration of Art and Revolution put on by the Theater of the Oppressed, and a panel on Sunday discussing Bogg’s philosophy and activism with scholars and activists

And we talk to Lina Buffington, the Executive Director of MISSEY, about their work Motivating, Inspiring, Supporting & Serving Sexually Exploited Youth and Professor Teiahsha Bankhead, Associate Director of Restorative Justice For Oakland Youth, who provide alternatives to punitive school discipline and juvenile justice policies. We look at how black girls and women are uniquely affected by state and personal violence and the solutions they are offering to interrupt those cycles of violence.
