Howard Zinn, August 24, 1922 - January 27, 2010
It is with great sadness that we report the passing of historian, author, teacher, and activist Howard Zinn.
Howard was a long time supporter of Jobs with Justice. He was arrested in in 1996 as part of a Jobs with Justice delegation peacefully supporting striking immigrant workers at the Richmark factory in Everett, MA.
Howard Zinn inspired the Western Massachusetts Jobs with Justice "Voices of a People’s History" performance and inspired our "Voices of Working People’s History" May Day Celebration. You can listen to Howard deliver a heart-wrenching and spirited reading of his work incorporating a rich selection of quotations and rememberances of labor history in Western Massachusetts on the W. Mass JwJ website.
His leadership, insight, and inspiration will be greatly missed.
