Howard Zinn: American Historian & Social Activist

A Bit About Zinn

Historian and social activist Howard Zinn was born on August 22, 1922. He wrote A People’s History of the United States, which is American history seen through the eyes of common people instead of economic elites or politicians. He was also an active advocate of the Civil Rights and the Anti-War movements. He died January 27, 2010 at the age of 87.

You Can’t Be Neutral on a Moving Train

In this presentation of The Massachusetts School of Law’s program, Books of Our Times, Dean Lawrence R. Velvel interviews American Historian Howard Zinn on his books: You Can’t Be Neutral on a Moving Train – A personal History of Our Times, and Failure To Quit – Reflections of an Optimistic Historian. The discussion ranges from Mr. Zinn’s optimism for the future and what true Patriotism is, to what Americans don’t want to hear.
