Talking with Activist Howard Zinn

Today, we bring you a conversation with historian and playwright Howard Zinn. He's been active in civil rights and anti-war movements in America. But Zinn may be best known for writing A People's History of the United States. The book strives to reveal the stories of those he feels have been left out of the established American narrative. Tomorrow night, Zinn will be the keynote speaker on an issue he's taken on in recent years. The 9th annual Campaign to End the Death Penalty convention takes place tomorrow on the University of Chicago campus.
