This year’s summer intensive was hosted in Detroit, Michigan in partnership with the James and Grace Lee Boggs Center, from July 7 to 13. This year’s theme was All Power to the People!: Social Ecology and the Black Radical Tradition in Today’s Revolutionary Movements.
Participants—local as well as from across North America—spent six days together studying and learning the core ideas of social ecology, popular movements for direct democracy and community power, and the practice and legacy of transformative community action in the City of Detroit. Four half-days were spent on site tours around Detroit, with the remaining time spent in group talks, presentations, and discussions covering topics ranging from communal stewardship of land to the Rojava Revolution.
