Please join us at this special tribute performance for the great radical historian Howard Zinn (1922-2010). Best known for his book, A People's History of the United States, Howard Zinn's writing and activism have left an indelible mark on our understanding of U.S. history. His most recent work is the acclaimed documentary The People Speak.
Zinn's play MARX IN SOHO is a witty and insightful answer to the question, "If Karl Marx could see the world today, what would he say?" Teacher, actor, and activist, Brian Jones has been performing this play across the country since 1999. An audiobook of his performance, introduced by Howard Zinn, will be released soon by Haymarket Books.
Hosted by Amy Goodman, host of Democracy Now! and New York Times best-selling author, most recently of Breaking the Sound Barrier. Presented by the New York Society for Ethical Culture and Haymarket Books. Co-sponsored by Voices of a People's History of the United States, The Brecht Forum, the Indypendent, and Beacon Press. (Co-sponsor list in formation.)
