VOICES OF A PEOPLE’S HISTORY AT COOPER UNION

October 14, 2019
New York

This special event, produced by the 400 Years of Inequality project, commemorates Howard Zinn’s seminal book, A People’s History of the United States, with music and spoken-word performances that bring to life the extraordinary history of ordinary people in the book: those who built the movements for social justice, ending slavery and Jim Crow, protesting war and the genocide of Native Americans, creating unions and the eight-hour workday, advancing women’s rights and gay liberation, and struggling to right the wrongs of the day.
