UtneCast: Howard Zinn Talks About His New Documentary
Listen now (7:10)
On Sunday, December 13, the History Channel will air The People Speak, a documentary based on historian Howard Zinn’s book Voices of a People’s History, a collection of 200 documents and speeches that serve as the raw material to Zinn’s classic book A People’s History of the United States.
The People Speak features dramatic and musical performances by Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Danny Glover, Josh Brolin, Marisa Tomei, Sandrah Oh, Matt Damon and more.
I asked Zinn to pick a speech he’d like to have performed for President Obama and who he’d pick to read it. He picked a piece read by David Strathairn and we’ve included a recording of the Strathairn reading here.
Music by the Bombay Sweets. Enjoy!
