$5 admission

As part of a national ISO Film Tour we will be showing Howard Zinn’s documentary feature film THE PEOPLE SPEAK­—which brings to life the letters, diaries and speeches of everyday Americans who fought for equality and justice from the bottom up and includes 20 min of footage not in the TV broadcast.

Narrated by acclaimed historian Howard Zinn and based on his best-selling books, A People's History of the United States and, with Anthony Arnove, Voices of a People's History, THE PEOPLE SPEAK illustrates the relevance of these passionate historical moments to our society today and reminds us never to take liberty for granted.
