From Serving Money to Serving Life: A Sacred Story for Our Time with David Korten
Wednesday, April 22, 7-8:30 p.m.
Pigott Auditorium

Best-selling author and former Harvard business professor David Korten joins SU on Earth Day. In his latest book Change the Story, Change the Future: A Living Economy for a Living Earth, Korten notes that human societies are shaped far more than we commonly recognize by the sacred stories around which we organize. One of the most foundational of biblical stories tells us that we must choose between service to life and service to money. But we now organize as a global society by a Sacred Money and Markets story that leads us to serve money, rather than life. Our future depends on a deep economic transformation, a future grounded in a Sacred Life and Living Earth story that celebrates the deep and self-evident truth that we are living beings born of and nurtured by a living Earth.

American Revolutionary: The Evolution of Grace Lee Boggs ?
A Racial Justice Film and Discussion
Thursday, April 16, 6:30-8:30 p.m.
Bannan Auditorium (Room 102)

Grace Lee Boggs is a 99-year-old Chinese American philosopher, writer and activist in Detroit with a thick FBI file and a surprising vision of what an American revolution can be. Rooted for 75 years in the labor, civil rights and Black Power movements, she challenges a new generation to throw off old assumptions, think creatively and redefine revolution for our times. How a smart, determined, idealistic Chinese American woman became a civil rights movement fixture from its earliest post-war days and later a spokesperson for Black Power (often the only non-black ?and only woman ?in a roomful of unapologetic activists planning for a revolution they believed inevitable) is a riveting and revealing tale.

American Revolutionary shows that Boggs got in on the action and the action got going long before the turbulent 1960s. As she reminds a group of students, ?I got my Ph.D. in 1940. Just imagine that.? Born in 1915 in Providence, R.I., to Chinese immigrants who moved to New York and prospered in the restaurant trade ?Chin Lee?s opened in Manhattan in 1924 ?she grew up relatively privileged and excelled at the nearly all-white Bryn Mawr and Barnard Colleges.
