The People Speak

On Sunday December 13th at 8 pm Howard Zinn's film project The People Speak will premier on (of all places) the History Channel. The program consists primarily of various actors and actresses reading primary texts from American history. You can read notices here at The Nation and here at The New York Times. This seems like a provocative project. And I will say that reading Zinn's SNCC - The New Abolitionists as an undergraduate was a formative experience. It got me interested in politics. Perhaps The People Speak can have a similar impact.
