This special free performance at David Rubenstein Atrium at Lincoln Center will feature actor and educators with students at the High School for Arts, Imagination and Inquiry, a New York City public school located at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Educational Campus, co-founded by Lincoln Center Education, among other special guests to be announced. 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.
