“Organize, and don’t count the costs” ~ 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, with several revised editions). Zinn, a prominent activist, was active in the Civil Rights Movement and opposed the United States-led Iraq War (2003+).
