Historian Howard Zinn, 1922 - 2010

Way back in May '07 I attended a reading of the People's History of the United States. Danny Glover, Steve Earle and others joined Prof. Zinn to read passages from the book. It was a last minute decision to go and when I hesitated my friend Barbara, all the way from California, insisted that I go. Thank you Barbara! It was a marvelous evening filled with energy, solidarity and history. Prof. Zinn died yesterday. I'm so glad I went.
