This Lincoln Center commission 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 words of ordinary people engaged in struggles for freedom and justice: those who fought to end slavery and Jim Crow, protested war and the genocide of Native Americans, created unions and the eight-hour workday, advanced women's rights and gay liberation, and struggled to right the wrongs of the day. A galvanizing and engaging lineup of performers delve into original source materials from the rebels, dissenters, and visionaries of our past—and present.


Performers include: Jeffrey Ellis-Lee, Jean Grae, Brian Jones, Hari Kondabolu, Leta Renée-Alan, Aparna Nancherla, Ethan Pimentel, Susan Pourfar, Marvin Sewell, Imani Uzuri, Staceyann Chin, Megalyn Echikunwoke, Kellindo Parker, and Karina Ortiz.
