“What does it mean to be a human being?” asks (r)evolutionary activist/philosopher, philosopher/activist Grace Lee Boggs. After participating, studying and carefully reflecting on the revolutions of the past 100 years, Grace re-minds us what is at stake in our social movements for justice. She reminds us that we are involved in a struggle to continue moving the social itself, to keep pushing the boundaries of our collective humanity. Our movements become (r)evolutionary the moment they transcend oppressions in ways that dismantle multiple barriers to our connectivity, challenging us all to become more human together. We move in community, move socially, towards “new” understandings of being human. In conversation and co-creation with her partner Jimmy Boggs, they remind us that “just because we were born from our mother’s womb doesn’t make us human beings.” To be human is to be in the process of becoming human. Lest we forget, Grace and Jimmy Boggs are fundamental abuelit@s for our food justice movements. Along with the youth from Detroit Summer, Grace and Jimmy shaped the contours of what we even understand today as ‘food justice’, that is the struggle for the restoration of our humanity through the regeneration of our local and global food systems and the land itself.
