Grace Lee Boggs and Her Take on Leadership

“The tendency is to look to existing structures for leadership.” This is what Grace Lee Boggs says at the beginning of this clip, and she is absolutely right. People don’t realize that change in structure is sometimes exactly what is needed to make an improvement in certain circumstances or because of certain events. Detroit needs a leader, and not one of the robot politicians that it has been known to elect. The city needs an innovator: someone with a vision for the future, and someone who can make that vision happen. As Grace Lee Boggs says, “How we think– our philosophies– matter a lot.” Detroit is waiting for someone to be brave enough to share that philosophy and be willing to step up and make a change.
