Many of you have been influenced by Howard Zinn and read or even worked with his People's History of the United States. He had planned to speak here in Olympia, Saturday, Feb. 6, at 3 P.M. but passed away last week. He'd be delighted to know people will gather to consider the people's history and tell the people's stories that day anyway.
Come honor and celebrate Howard Zinn's life and work at The Evergreen State College this Saturday Feb. 6 from 3 - 5:00 in Lecture Hall 1. The program will feature a recent interview of Zinn with David Barsamian and a recording of the address "Three Holy Wars" that Zinn had promised to bring to Olympia. Local educators and activists and artists will testify to the ways that Howard Zinn has touched their lives and work. We will close with music sung by David Rovics.
The event is free. Donations will be collected in Howard Zinn's name to fund peace and justice work here in the US and in Haiti.
