Howard Zinn: The People's Historian

Big Think, Video, Howard Zinn Posted: Jan 28, 2010

Editor's Note: Howard Zinn, an historian who became part of U.S. history as a participant in civil rights and social justice movements, died Wednesday at 87, leaving behind a long legacy of writing and activism. His "People's History of the United States," published in 1980, countered the orthodox views of American history by telling the nation's story from the perspectives of ordinary people. In a video interview conducted May 8, 2008 with the online think tank Big Think, Zinn, a former shipyard worker and WWII pilot, described his political philosophy and hopes for democracy.
