This special free performance at David Rubenstein Atrium at Lincoln Center featured Aunjanue Ellis, Adepero Oduye, Eve Ensler, Wallace Shawn, Deva Mahal, Toshi Reagon, Brian Jones, Hari Kondabolu, and Juan Ospina of M.A.K.U SoundSystem. With narration by Anthony Arnove, co-editor with Howard Zinn of Voices of a People’s History of the United States and author of the introduction to the new 35th-anniversary edition of A People’s History of the United States.
Voices of a People’s History of the United States brings to life the extraordinary history of ordinary people who built the movements that made the United States what it is today, ending slavery and Jim Crow, protesting war and the genocide of Native Americans, creating unions and the eight hour work day, advancing women’s rights and gay liberation, and struggling to right wrongs of the day. By giving public expression to rebels, dissenters, and visionaries from our past—and present—Voices seeks to educate and inspire a new generation working for social justice.
