In February 2003, a remarkable event took place in New York, a
celebration of the millionth copy sold of Howard Zinn's great A
People's History of the United States. Zinn drew on the words of
Americans -- some famous, some little known -- across the range of
American history. These words were read by distinguished people in
the arts: Alice Walker, Alfre Woodard, Kurt Vonnegut, James Earl
Jones, Danny Glover, Marisa Tomei, Harris Yulin, Andre Gregory and
From that event, this audio was born. It includes selections
from Christopher Columbus, a Lowell mill worker, Frederick
Douglass, Mark Twain, Helen Keller, Eugene Debs, a HUAC
interrogation, Malcolm X, and a Gulf War resister, which are
interwoven with commentary by Howard Zinn. This makes for exciting
listening and is on its own an invaluable contribution to
understanding American history.
