enjoy savory Brazilian dishes with a no-host bar and
help raise seed money for the People's History Exhibit,
a project to create a traveling mobile museum based on Howard Zinn's classic,
"A People's History of the United States."
"What can I say that will in any way convey the love, respect, and admiration I feel for this unassuming hero who was my teacher and mentor; this radical historian and people-loving 'troublemaker'... Howard Zinn was the best teacher I ever had, and the funniest."
- Alice Walker
