In Honor of Howard Zinn

Noam Chomsky, noted author and philosopher, and Anthony Arnove, filmmaker and editor, spoke on Sunday, Dec. 4, at SUNY-New Paltz in tribute to the legacy and life’s work of the late Howard Zinn (1922-2010), American historian, activist and playwright.

This event was titled “Honoring Howard Zinn: An Historian Who Made History.” Presentations by Chomsky and Arnove considered Zinn’s leading role in promoting peace and social justice in the contemporary world. A question-and-answer session follow follows the formal lectures.

Zinn, who played a pivotal role in American civil rights and anti-war movements, wrote more than 20 books, including his best-selling and influential “A People’s History of the United States.” His memoir, “You Can’t Be Neutral on a Moving Train,” was also the title of a 2004 documentary about Zinn’s life and work. He was Professor of Political Science at Boston University from 1964 to 1988.
