Congress shall make no lawabridging freedom of speech. There it is. Plain and simple. The First Amendment to the Constitution. But since 9/11 that amendment has been under sustained attack. Whistleblowers John Kiriakou, Julian Assange, Chelsea Manning, Edward Snowden, and others are hounded, threatened and imprisoned by the U.S. government. A fascinating and compelling account of past and present efforts to secure and expand political and social rights for workers, women and African-Americans. A classic Zinn from our archives.

This program is part of AR's Zinn Centenary Celebration. Throughout August we'll be featuring some of his most memorable lectures.

Howard Zinn, professor emeritus at Boston University, was perhaps this countrys premier radical historian. Witty, erudite, generous and loved by many the world over, Howard Zinn, friend and teacher, passed away in 2010. He would say, Dont mourn. Get active. The struggle for peace and justice continues.
