And you didn’t tell me?

Actually, it’s more of a website. Many teachers use some of Zinn’s writings, and your library really should include a copy of Zinn’s A People’s History of the United States. Note the on-line collection of essays from The Progressive and ZNet. Links go to audio and video of Zinn lectures and debates, and this series of dramatic readings from A People’s History featuring James Earl Jones, Alfre Woodard, Marisa Tomei and other stars. Students will find his site entertaining.

And notice, revealed in the note about a movie coming from the book, there is a connection between Zinn and Matt Damon. Any mnemonic device will do in a rising tide . . .

    Students, and everyone, should also read “A People’s History of the American Revolution” by Ray Raphael. It is in a series edited by Zinn.

    Fascinating man, a radical with a heart and a brain–I’ve been been meaning to read PEOPLE’S HISTORY since forever and maybe now I’ll have extra impetus to get to it…
