Remembering Howard Zinn

by Tim McSorley

Howard Zinn died today. He was 87 years old. The historian and longtime civil rights activist helped to shatter many myths of American history with his seminal A People's History of the United States. He remained active and critical throughout his life. While he rejoiced to see Barack Obama elected as the first African-American president of the United States, he remained cautious and called on Obama supporters to remain alert, organised and critical.

I missed his last visit to Montreal, but had the pleasure of working on audio from that last visit for a podcast for CITIZENShift. Take a listen and thanks to Evan Light, who interviewed Zinn.
