Tribute: Howard Zinn.

We don’t have to engage in grand, heroic actions to participate in the process of change. Small acts, when multiplied by millions of people, can transform the world.  ~Howard Zinn

“His writings have changed the consciousness of a generation, and helped open new paths to understanding and its crucial meaning for our lives”  ~ Noam Chomsky

Howard Zinn, liberal lion, just passed away. Though I attended BU, where he taught, I learned about him via this movie and his best-selling People’s History of the United States.
