“We don’t have to engage in grand, heroic actions to participate in the process of change. Small acts, when multiplied by millions of people, can quietly become a power no government can suppress, a power that can transform the world.” ~ Howard Zinn (August 24, 1922 to January 27, 2010)
Howard Zinn was an American historian, educator, author, and activist. Notably, Zinn was the author of A People’s History of the United States (1980, and several revised editions).
