Castles for the Laborers and Ballgames on the Radio

Poet Martín Espada wrote a poem to honor Howard Zinn called “Castles for the Laborers and Ballgames on the Radio.”

He read the poem during a 2013 interview on Moyers & Company. Espada referred to Zinn as “the most decent, most generous human being I have ever known.”

The reading was during an interview with Bill Moyers called “Martín Espada on the Power Behind Poetry.” Espada spoke with Moyers about the power of poetry and the release of his collection, The Trouble Ball.
