It is undeniable that Howard Zinn's legacy lives on, especially at Boston
University. You can hear it in the voices of BU students calling for an end
to war, sanctions, and occupation. Feel it within the walls of the Center
for Gender, Sexuality, and Activism. Find it on the pages of Zinn's classic
book "A People's History of the United States." It is up to us as students,
activists, and human beings to hold tight to this spirit of resistance and
pass it forward to future generations because, in the words of Howard Zinn,
"dissent is the highest form of patriotism."

In this spirit, please join BU Anti-War Coalition for an evening of
celebrating the life of beloved BU professor, academic, activist, and
"irrepressible optimist" Howard Zinn. We will be performing the speeches,
poems, and songs of those voices silenced by traditional history books as
documented by Zinn in "Voices of a People's History of the United States".
Come hear the words of Emma Goldman, Malcolm X, and Eugene Debs, and others
brought to life in an interactive and inspirational performance. We hope to
see you there!
