Life and Times of Howard Zinn

Historian, activist, and academic author

A documentary following the life and work of Howard Zinn, America’s most outspoken and high-profile anti-war campaigner. He saw war as a young bombardier at the end of WWII, and later became an academic historian, author, playwright, and social activist.

HOWARD ZINN - "I suggest that the history of bombing — and no one has bombed more than this nation — is a history of endless atrocities, all calmly explained by deceptive and deadly language like ‘accident’, ‘military target’, and ‘collateral damage'.”
