HowardZinn.org, Zinn Education Project, Tamiment Library, and Voices of a People's History are pleased to present a week of events to celebrate Howard Zinn's 100th birthday that include a teacher workshop, historian and artist panel, and archivist panel.
In celebration of the 100th anniversary of Howard Zinn (1922-2010), the Midwestern Archivist granted rights to publish “Secrecy, Archives, and the Public Interest" (1977). Influential still today, Zinn urges archivists to “One, engage in a campaign to open all government documents to the public. . . . And two, that they take the trouble to compile a whole new world of documentary material, about the lives, desires, needs, of ordinary people.”
