2/3 Howard Zinn: You Can't Be Neutral on a Moving Train

Join us for a Movie Screening
Howard Zinn:
You Can't Be Neutral on a Moving Train

Wednesday at 7pm, Room B14 in the basement
of the UW School for Social Work (Corner of 15th N.E. and N.E. 41st)  

Howard Zinn died of a heart attack last Wednesday at the age of 87. With his death, we lose a man who did nothing less than rewrite the narrative of the United States. We lose a historian who also made history. Howard was a fixture of countless struggles for justice and equality in the U.S. over many long decades. He was as determined in his 80s as he was many years before as a witness and participant in the great battles of the civil rights movement and the fight against the Vietnam War.

This week we will honor his life with this documentary film that that is not only the story of Zinn's life, but essentially a very inspiring history of American radicalism for the last 87 years!

The people's historian Nation columnist Dave Zirin honors the author of A People's History of the United States and a fighter in many struggles over half a century.

A historian who made history Alan Maass pays tribute to a historian who helped make history.
