The People SpeakBY Connie Wohn, February 23, 2009
If you haven’t read Howard Zinn’s book, A People’s History of The United States, you need to. Its amazing look at the real American history through the eyes of the people that made it. This Documentary “The People Speak” based on the live performances of Howard Zinn and Anthony Arnove’s Voices of a People’s History of the United States. This year, a documentary based on Howard Zinn’s groundbreaking books A People’s History of the United States and Voices of a People’s History of the United States, featuring music by Eddie Vedder and performances by Viggo Mortensen, Sandra Oh, Sean Penn, Rosario Dawson, Don Cheadle, John Legend, and many other great performers, will air in TV and be released on a special DVD. The documentary, The People Speak, shows the rich history of dissent in our history, and explores why it is so relevant and urgent today.
Please also visit his website http://howardzinn.org/ to find out further information including about live performances of this work. This week there is on in San Fransisco which includes one of our favorite artists, Boots Riley of The Coup.
thanks goes out to Jessi for the tip on this.
