A People’s History Of The United States: A Lecture at Reed College By Howard Zinn
“I never wanted to practice safe history.” Howard Zinn
“What can I say that will in any way convey the love, respect, and admiration I feel for this unassuming hero who was my teacher and mentor.” —Alice Walker
AK Press: “A scintillating lecture and discussion by the legendary teacher, historian, playwright, and activist. Here Zinn explains with great humor and passion how his teaching, his history, and his activism are parts of the same project. The stories of social movements—labor, civil rights, feminists, anti-war—are usually left out or grossly distorted in mainstream history writing. The efforts of Zinn and others to recover and pass on those stories offers to their students, to their readers, and to us, models, ideas, inspirations for how and why we might go about challenging and changing the structures of power.
