The Second Wednesday Video will be “THE PEOPLE SPEAK” a beautiful and moving film inspired by Howard Zinn’s books A People’s History of the United States and Voices of a People’s History of the United States. The film features the actual words (in letters, songs, poems, speeches, and manifestos) of rebels, dissenters and visionaries from our past – and present – including Frederick Douglass, Susan B. Anthony, Bob Dylan, Langston Hughes, Chief Joseph, Muhammad Ali as well and unknown veterans, union workers, abolitionists, and many others never featured in high school textbooks. Features Matt Damon, Josh Brolin, Danny Glover, Morgan Freeman, Marisa Tomei and many others.
Like Howard Zinn’s work as a whole, THE PEOPLE SPEAK celebrates the extraordinary possibilities for creating social change that ordinary people have realized throughout the course of our nation’s rich but often ignored history of dissent and protest. This video will be shown at the Fresno Center for Nonviolence, 1584 N. Van Ness (S.E. corner McKinley and Van Ness).
