Bold and empowering words from America's struggles, past and present, are resurrected here by some of our leading living voices. An all-star cast joins authors Howard Zinn and Anthony Arnove to perform the rousing words of dissent that have shaped and quickened the pulse of a nation. This audio CD consists of sixteen readings thoughtfully selected by Zinn and Arnove from Voices of a People's History of the United States, the long-awaited primary source companion to Zinn's seminal A People's History of the United States. The voices of our history are given new voices, the brazen spirit of rebellion and resistance are alive and well again.
With readings by: Anthony Arnove, Josh Brolin, Danny Glover, Brian Jones, Sarah Jones, Christina Kirk, Viggo Mortensen, Sandra Oh, Paul Robeson, Jr., John Sayles, Wallace Shawn, Lili Taylor, Marisa Tomei, Kerry Washington, and Howard Zinn.
