Inspired by the work of the late historian Howard Zinn (A People’s History of the United States), this event brings to life, through readings and songs, the voices of rebels, dissenters, and visionaries from our past—and present.
This live performance features poet Staceyann Chin, Ethan Hawke (Tesla), singer-songwriter Celisse Henderson, Viggo Mortensen (Falling), Ntare Guma Mbaho Mwine (Farewell Amor), singer-songwriter Meshell Ndegeocello with guitarist Christopher Bruce, and Festival juror and actor Isabella Rossellini. Anthony Arnove (co-director of The People Speak with Howard Zinn) narrates.
