For their recent book, Voices of a People's History of the United States, Howard Zinn and Anthony Arnove selected testimonies of people throughout U.S. history who struggled against slavery, racism and war, against oppression and exploitation, and who articulated a vision for a better world. On October 22, 2004, a remarkable event was held at the New York Society for Ethical Culture, where a talented group of actors and activists helped bring the book's dramatic voices to life. This 2 hour DVD features powerful and dramatic readings by Brian Jones, Sarah Jones, Paul Robeson Jr., John Sayles, Wallace Shawn, Leslie Silva, and Lili Taylor. Narrated by Anthony Arnove and Howard Zinn.
