Now that Howard Zinn has died, may we all reflect on his legacy and what we can do to continue to educate.
see article here
His A People's History of the United Statesopened my eyes. Zinn's essays, lectures, and interviews changed lives and opened minds. May we remain open minded and never compromise under the power structure of religion and greed.

Oh, I'm so sorry to hear this. "A People's History of the United States" is a reference book in our home. I had no idea he was 87. Last year, I'd put him on my list of people who live in my region that I wanted to hear speak.

Reading A People's History of the United States in high school was a key event in teaching me to critically examine the surrounding world and not to blindly accept any telling of history. Zinn was truly an amazing educator.
