What the late Howard Zinn would say about politics today

Howard Zinn’s 100th birthday celebration was August 24. Even though he died in 2010, I decided to hold a séance to find out how he is doing and ask him some questions.

As one admirer wrote, Zinn was “a brilliant practitioner of both history as activism and activism to change history.” He was also a World War ll veteran who became a pacifist, a working man who became a college teacher, and a historian who joined the front lines of the Civil Rights movement.
