Dear Zinn Education Project friends,


ZEP Fundraiser Video IconWe are pleased to share video highlights from the special event on Sept. 21 to celebrate International Peace Day, dedicate the Howard Zinn Room at Busboys and Poets, and raise funds for the Zinn Education Project.


More than 300 people were inspired by the words of Jeff ZinnBernice Johnson Reagon, Cornel WestDave ZirinBeverly Daniel Tatum, Barbara Ehrenreich, and many more.


The date ended up being more significant than could have been imagined. The pall of the impending execution of death row inmate Troy Davis hung in the air. Emcee-for-the-evening Dave Zirin, led a heartfelt call of "They say death row" and the room resounded with the response of "We say hell no!"

This set the tone for an evening of action, solidarity, and inspiration. Now you can hear the moving presentations too.

Watch the film clips and view the photo album. Then make sure teachers can continue to receive people's history resources for the classroom by voting for the Zinn Education Project on the 2011 CREDO ballot

The Zinn Education Project introduces students to a more accurate, complex, and engaging understanding of United States history than is found in traditional textbooks and curricula.
