THE PEOPLE SPEAK COLLEGE TOUR is a national campus tour for the forthcoming documentary film THE PEOPLE SPEAK (http://www.thepeoplespeak.com/) and will will bring the film's producers and cast members to eight universities across the country for live readings, clip screenings, and in-depth discussion.

Using dramatic and musical performances of the letters, diaries and speeches of everyday Americans, THE PEOPLE SPEAK gives voice to those who spoke up for social change throughout U.S. history, forging a nation from the bottom up with their insistence on equality and justice. Produced by Matt Damon, Josh Brolin, Chris Moore, Anthony Arnove and acclaimed historian Howard Zinn, THE PEOPLE SPEAK illustrates the relevance of these passionate historical moments to our society today and reminds us never to take liberty for granted.

THE PEOPLE SPEAK features Josh Brolin, Matt Damon, Rosario Dawson, Bob Dylan, Morgan Freeman, John Legend, Viggo Mortensen, Bruce Springsteen, Marisa Tomei, and Kerry Washington.

THE PEOPLE SPEAK COLLEGE TOUR at BOSTON UNIVERSITY features HOWARD ZINN and his co-executive producer CHRIS MOORE (Project Greenlight, Good Will Hunting, American Pie) and actor DAVID STRATHAIRN (Bourne Ultimatum, Good Night and Good Luck) in live performance and also showing highlights from the film, talking with the audience, and taking questions from students.
