A Collection of Ideas... A Tribute to Howard Zinn
Selected clips from Howard Zinn's new documentary, The People Speak, with special guest Peter Sellars. Using dramatic and musical performances of diaries, letters, and speeches by everyday Americans, The People Speak gives voice to those who valiantly spoke up for social change throughout U.S. history. Produced by Matt Damon, Josh Brolin, Chris Moore, Anthony Arnove, and Zinn, The People Speak illustrates the magnitude of these passionate historical moments and reminds us never to take liberty for granted.
*Note: Program Change: Howard Zinn was due to speak at SMMoA about his new documentary, The People Speak. Following Zinn's death on Wednesday, January 27, the event has become a tribute to this remarkable man and his work.
The event is now full. A stand-by line will open at 7p; seating is not guaranteed. Admission $25; $10 SMMoA members. Proceeds from the event will go to support the Educational Fund of The People Speak, a charitable initiative which brings this powerful documentary into schools and communities free-of-charge.
