The year 2022 marks the 100th anniversary of Howard Zinn (August 24, 1922 – January 27, 2010). In addition to the well-known best seller A People’s History of the United States, Zinn wrote more than 20 books covering topics such as the Civil Rights Movement, labor, the anti-war movement, critiques of prison and policing, and more. His writings bring to life many stories left out of most history books about African Americans, Indigenous peoples, women, and the working class. His life as both teacher and activist informed his work, deeply rooted in the lives and struggles of everyday people.
Social Justice Books has a collection of many of Howard Zinn’s books on our Bookshop.org page Howard Zinn’s Titles.
