A selection of the shorter writings and speeches that best reflect Zinn's views on race. As chairman of history at all black women's Spelman College, Zinn was an outspoken supporter of activists in the nascent civil rights movement. He firmly believed that bringing people of different races and nationalities together would create a more compassionate world, where equality is a given and not merely a dream. In clear, compassionate and present prose, Zinn shares his thoughts on the Abolitionists, John F. Kennedy and one of his final speeches on race.

Rare book

Review:

- "What can I say that will in any way convey the love, respect, and admiration I feel for this unassuming hero who was my teacher and mentor, this radical historian and people-loving 'trouble-maker, ' this man who stood with us and suffered with us? Howard Zinn was the best teacher I ever had, and the funniest." --Alice Walker
- "Professor Zinn writes with an enthusiasm rarely encountered in the leaden prose of academic history, and his text is studded with telling quotations from labor leaders, war resisters, and fugitive slaves." --Eric Foner, The New York Times Book Review

Book Description Seven Stories Press,U.S., United States, 2011. Paperback. Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English. Brand new Book. Howard Zinn on Race is Zinn's choice of the shorter writings and speeches that best reflect his views on America's most taboo topic. As chairman of the history department at all black women's Spelman College, Zinn was an outspoken supporter of student activists in the nascent civil rights movement. In "The Southern Mystique," he tells of how he was asked to leave Spelman in 1963 after teaching there for seven years. "Behind every one of the national government's moves toward racial equality," writes Zinn in one 1965 essay, "lies the sweat and effort of boycotts, picketing, beatings, sit-ins, and mass demonstrations." He firmly believed that bringing people of different races and nationalities together would create a more compassionate world, where equality is a given and not merely a dream. These writings, which span decades, express Zinn's steadfast belief that the people have the power to change the status quo, if they only work together and embrace the nearly forgotten American tradition of civil disobedience and revolution. In clear, compassionate, and present prose, Zinn gives us his thoughts on the Abolitionists, the march from Selma to Montgomery, John F. Kennedy, picketing, sit-ins, and, finally, the message he wanted to send to New York University students about race in a speech he delivered during the last week of his life.
