The collaboration between Lincoln Center, the Maxine Greene High School for Imaginative Inquiry (NYC), and Voices of a People's History of the United States, an organization cofounded by historian Howard Zinn (1922–2010) invites students to investigate and perform original source materials spanning centuries of American history, including speeches, letters, poems, and songs written by women, workers, people of color, and more. As Zinn put it, the project aims to advance social justice education through the perspectives of "the people who have been overlooked in the traditional history books."
