Stumbling Toward Enlightenment

Gatherings from the Internet

Howard Zinn, 1922-2010


I spoke with my friend, Cathy Cade this morning and she told me a story of her being in his class at Spellman College. After being at Spellman for only three days (Cathy), she found herself being led in a classroom sit-in by Zinn. She later went on to write a paper for his class about the abuses of Chinese women…in 1962!

Check out his web site at Howard for many, many tributes, as well as this one from Democracy!Now:

We pay tribute to the late historian, writer and activist Howard Zinn, who died suddenly on Wednesday of a heart attack at the age of eighty-seven. Howard Zinn’s classic work A People’s History of the United States changed the way we look at history in America. It has sold over a million copies and was recently made into a television special called The People Speak. We remember Howard Zinn in his own words, and we speak with those who knew him best: Noam Chomsky, Alice Walker, Naomi Klein and Anthony Arnove.
