Howard Zinn-In


During his US History class today, Indiana University associate Professor Alex Lichtenstein held what he deemed a “Howard Zinn-in.” The date coincides with the birthday of famous Hoosier Eugene V. Debbs, a prominent Socialist and proponent of union rights during the turn of the twentieth century who Zinn admired. The event was held in conjunction with similar Zinn-ins held throught the state, all in protest of former governor Mitch Daniels attempts to ban the author’s works from Indiana classrooms. We bring you that speech for today’s WFHB feature exclusive.
