"One Long Struggle for Justice": An Interview with Historian Howard Zinn
Bigelow, Bill
Rethinking Schools, v24 n3 p17-23 Spr 2010
In 2008 "Rethinking Schools" and the Washington, D.C.-based education nonprofit Teaching for Change joined together to form the Zinn Education Project, dedicated to promoting the teaching of a people's history in middle and high schools throughout the United States. The Zinn Education Project recently launched a new website,, that features over 75 downloadable teaching articles, drawn mostly from the archives of "Rethinking Schools" magazine, and hundreds of teaching resource recommendations: (1) books; (2) curricula; and (3) audiovisual materials. In early January, the Zinn Education Project joined with HarperCollins, publisher of Howard Zinn's classic "A People's History of the United States," to sponsor an "Ask Howard" online radio interview, and invited teachers from around the country participate. Sixty teachers and students submitted written questions to Professor Zinn. The January 19 interview was conducted by "Rethinking Schools" Curriculum Editor Bill Bigelow. This turned out to be Howard Zinn's last broadcast interview. He died in California just eight days later. This article presents excerpts from that interview, edited for length and clarity.
