Howard Zinn's Last Interview

The Boston Globe reported today that "Howard Zinn, historian and political activist whose books such as A People's History of the United States prompted a generation to rethink the nation's past, died yesterday in Santa Monica, California, where he was traveling. He was 87."

Howard inspired a generation of students and teachers--and his legacy to them is embodied in The Zinn Education Project--a place where teachers will find free materials and resources.

Last week, Howard Zinn--sharp as ever--set aside an hour to answer questions from teachers--and you can listen to his last interview here.
