  • July 4th Special: Readings from Howard Zinn’s "Voices of a People’s History of the United States"


    On July 4, we feature a Democracy Now! special — a dramatic reading of legendary historian Howard Zinn’s classic work, "A People’s History of the United States." First published more than a quarter of a century ago, the book has sold over a million copies and is a phenomenon in the world of publishing — selling more copies each successive year. Howard Zinn gathered with a group of actors, writers and editors for a public reading of the book at the 92nd Street Y in New York. The cast included Alice Walker, Kurt Vonnegut, Danny Glover and many others.
