Howard Zinn on Race


Manufacturer: Seven Stories

Product Information

Beginning in 1956 as chairman of the History department of Spelman College in Atlanta, Georgia, the nation's oldest historically black college for women, Howard Zinn was a key participant in the civil rights movement. He encouraged his students' activism, participated in the founding of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), marched with Dr. Martin Luther King, was arrested on numerous occasions, and was ultimately dismissed from Spelman for his principled activism. Perhaps it is as much for these experiences, as for his deep reading in the literature of American history, that Professor Howard Zinn has so much to teach us about race in America in the second half of the twentieth century and the first decade of the twenty-first.

Here are his reflections, shorter writings, newspaper articles, opinion pieces, speeches, and interviews, some never before published in book form, that show how his thinking evolved and also the ways in which his fundamental principles remained unshakable as he watched the story of race in America unfold.

Seven Stories Press, 2011, with an introduction by Cornel West.
