    RIP Howard Zinn

    Posted by dlt on January 31, 2010

    Howard Zinn, historian, political activist and author of the People’s History of the United States, has died.  He was traveling in California last week and succumbed to a heart attack at age 87.  Here is an article from the Boston Globe:

    Howard Zinn, historian who challenged status quo, dies at 87

    “He’s made an amazing contribution to American intellectual and moral culture,” Noam Chomsky, the left-wing activist and MIT professor, said tonight. “He’s changed the conscience of America in a highly constructive way. I really can’t think of anyone I can compare him to in this respect.”

    Read the rest of the article here.

    Rest in peace Howard Zinn.  Your words and actions and examples will live forever.
