Now almost 100 years old, the Chinese-American Detroit activist recounts stories from as far back as when the FBI had her and her husband watched up to living in today’s Detroit. The documentary, by filmmaker Grace Lee, is interspersed with 30-second primers.

You can see a trailer or, this month, the full film, or get more information on its PBS POV web page.
