Howard Zinn and Brian Jones

Presented by the New York Society for Ethical Culture and Haymarket Books.

Co-sponsored by Voices of a People’s History of the United States, The Brecht Forum, the Indypendent, and Beacon Press. (Co-sponsor list in formation.)

Please join us at this special tribute performance for the great radical historian Howard Zinn (1922-2010). Best known for his book, A People’s History of the United States, Howard Zinn’s writing and activism has left an indelible mark on our understanding of U.S. history. His most recent work is the acclaimed documentary The People Speak.

Zinn’s play MARX IN SOHO is a witty and insightful answer to the question, “If Karl Marx could see the world today, what would he say?” Teacher, actor, and activist, Brian Jones has been performing this play all over the country since 1999. An audiobook of his performance, introduced by Howard Zinn, will be released soon by Haymarket Books.
