The celebrated Progressive historian, political activist, and professor Howard Zinn is profiled in this radio adaptation of the documentary film, You Can't Be Neutral On a Moving Train.

Part 1 covers Zinn's impoverished early life in NYC; his early disillusionment with the police; and his experiences as a shipyard worker, Air Force bombardier in WWII, graduate student, and left-leaning white professor in a conservative Black college in the South as the Civil Rights movement took hold. (Cont'd...)
... All these events profoundly shaped Zinn's views on politics, democracy, freedom, history, and historiography.

Speakers including Alice Walker, Daniel Ellsberg, Marian Wright Edelman, Staughton Lynd, Noam Chomsky, Fr. Daniel Berrigan, and Zinn himself offer interesting perspectives on Zinn's times and his work.

The film, directed by Deb Ellis and Denis Mueller, was released in 2004.

New World Notes is produced under the auspices (Latin for "spreading chestnut tree") of WWUH-FM, a community service of that beacon of light in darkest Connecticut, the University of Hartford.
Howard Zinn (1922-2010) published more than 20 books including the influential A People's History of the United States (1980).
