Here in their own words are Frederick Douglass, George Jackson, Chief Joseph, Martin Luther King Jr., Plough Jogger, Sacco and Vanzetti, Patti Smith, Bruce Springsteen, Mark Twain, and Malcolm X, to name just a few of the hundreds appearing in Voices of a People's History of the United States, edited by Howard Zinn and Anthony Arnove. Paralleling the 24 chapters of Zinn's A People's History of the United States, Voices of a People's History is the long-awaited companion volume to the national bestseller. For Voices, Zinn and Arnove have selected testimonies to living history-speeches, letters, poems, songs-left by the people who make history happen, but who usually are underrepresented or misrepresented in history books: women, Native Americans, workers, blacks and Latinos. Zinn has written short introductions to the texts, which themselves range in length from letters or poems of less than a page to entire speeches and essays that run several pages and longer. Voices of a People's History is a symphony of our nation's original voices, rich in ideas and actions, an embodiment of the power of civil disobedience and dissent, wherein lies our nation's true spirit of defiance and resilience

The Southern mystique by Howard Zinn( Book )

30 editions published between 1959 and 2014 in English and held by 1,129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Have reluctant white southerners themselves exposed the fallacy of "gradualism"? Have reuluctant white northerners and federal law enforcement officers revealed that 'southern' attitudes on race are only exaggerated versions of opinions held by the majority of Americans? . . . Using both historical and contemporary evidence, the author demonstrates that while the 'peculiar' history of the South, its odd speech, and the torpor of its climate are contributing factors, the mystery is essentially man-made." -- Book jacket

Howard Zinn : you can't be neutral on a moving train : a documentary by Howard Zinn( Visual )

9 editions published between 2001 and 2016 in English and held by 905 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We mourn the loss of author, activist, historian and beloved folk hero Howard Zinn, who has been an integral part of the First Run legacy for many years. Howard lent his support to many first run films (many of which he appeared in), the most recent being the Oscar-nominated The most dangerous man in america: Daniel Ellsberg and the Pentagon papers. Howard hid copies of the Pentagon papers for Ellsberg, and he later served as an expert witness for the defense at Ellsberg's trial. In his recollections of Zinn, Ellsberg writes that his friend is the best human being I've ever known [and] the best example of what a human can be. We invite you to learn more about this remarkable man through this new commemorative edition of our best-selling video, featuring over an hour of new bonus materials. This acclaimed film looks at the amazing life of the renowned historian, activist and author. Following his early days as a shipyard labor organizer and bombardier in World War II, Zinn became an academic rebel and leader of civil disobedience in a time of institutionalized racism and war. His influential writings shine light on and bring voice to factory workers, immigrant laborers, African Americans, Native Americans and the working poor. Featuring rare archival materials and interviews with Zinn and colleagues such as Noam Chomsky, You can't be neutral on a moving train captures the essence of this extraordinary man who has been a catalyst for progressive change for more than 60 years. Narrated by Matt Damon. Featuring music by Pearl Jam, Woody Guthrie & Billy Bragg
The Zinn reader : writings on disobedience and democracy by Howard Zinn( Book )

10 editions published between 1997 and 2010 in English and held by 881 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

No other radical historian has reached so many hearts and minds as Howard Zinn. It is rare that a historian of the Left has managed to retain as much credibility while refusing to let his academic mantle change his beautiful writing style from being anything but direct, forthright, and accessible. Whether his subject is war, race, politics, economic justice, or history itself, each of his works serves as a reminder that to embrace one's subjectivity can mean embracing one's humanity, that heart and mind can speak with one voice. Here, in six sections, is the historian's own choice of his shorter essays on some of the most critical problems facing America throughout its history, and today
