This latest iteration of the now seven-year-long Lincoln Center commission series Voices of a People’s History continues our revitalization of the work of Brooklyn-born author, activist, and academic Howard Zinn as we celebrate the year of his centenary. This live event focuses on Zinn's timeless and insightful book, A People’s History of the United States, a document of the vital everyday epics of common people engaged in the life and death struggle for justice: abolitionists, activists, protesters, founders of the first American unions, suffragettes who advanced women's rights, and pioneers of gay liberation. All these heroic voices will be brought to life in performance by a chorus of young student activists who have been mentored by Voices teaching artists to find personal meaning in these timeless texts.
