We are pleased to share that HowardZinn.org is embarking on a long-term project to dig into the archives and bring Zinn’s own historical records to new audiences through digitization and transcription. We begin with four new pieces. There are hundreds more! You can help prepare the transcripts for publishing. Learn more and sign up!
At the White House Conference on American History, speakers (including President Trump) attacked Howard Zinn, the New York Times 1619 Project, and the Zinn Education Project. As Brett Wilkins reported at Common Dreams, "Educators fired back a series of tweets defending the project and accusing the president of spreading 'McCarthy-like' and 'fascist' ideas."
This collection features items from the Howard Zinn Papers at the Tamiment Library, the Summer Freedom Digital Collection at the Wisconsin Historical Society, other historical repositories, and personal collections.
