July 4th Special: Readings From Howard Zinn’s “Voices of a People’s History of the United States”

On July 4th, we feature a Democracy Now special–a dramatic reading of legendary historian Howard Zinn’s classic work, “A People’s History of the United States.” First published more than a quarter of a century ago, the book has sold over a million copies and is a phenomenon in the world of publishing–selling more copies each successive year. Howard Zinn gathered with a group of actors, writers and editors for a public reading of the book at the 92nd Street Y in New York. The cast included Alice Walker, Kurt Vonnegut, Danny Glover and many others.

I really love Howard Zinn, and I greatly enjoyed watching this on the 4th. I had my children watch it too. I wish this were required reading/watching for people. Peace 🙂
