James and Grace Lee Boggs Foundation
Her life story, dedication to movement organizing, and audacity to chart her own path deeply moved me, and in the process of integrating all I had learned about her and her vision for a more just world, I knew I wanted to write a song in her honor. Coincidentally, my frequent collaborator, producer and educator Chucky Kim, had actually spent an afternoon in her home in Detroit before she passed. Over Zoom we shared underlined passages and our mutual reverence as we built the song that’s out today. In addition, I knew I wanted this song to benefit the movement that she and Jimmy had birthed in Detroit. Thankfully, two women I admire, artist/designer Janelle Quibuyen and Michelle Hanabusa, founder of UPRISERS, were also down for the cause. We are elated to launch the Reimagine Everything Collection, where 50% of all proceeds will benefit the James and Grace Lee Boggs Foundation. The collection, designed by Michelle, includes a vintage tee, enamel pin, oversized five-pocket tote, and art print featuring Janelle’s original illustration. HUGE thanks in advance for any who wish to support the work of the Foundation, which works to advance and sustain the community initiatives founded by Jimmy and Grace in their home of Detroit.
