Howard Zinn - War and Social Justice

Historian Howard Zinn, civil rights activist and author of revolutionary and influential books such as A People's History of the United States and You Can't Be Neutral On a Moving Train, unfortunately passed away yesterday at the age of 87.

As you can see in the powerful, engaging and amusing lecture below, given at my own Alma Matter, Professor Zinn was a great speaker: casual, quick-witted, funny and thoughtful. An iconoclast to the end, he never lost sight of the social and moral imperative to question power and challenge the prevailing attitudes and false dilemmas of our culture.

He will be greatly missed.
