Here in their own words, are Frederick Douglass, George Jackson, Chief Joseph, Martin Luther King Jr., Plough Jogger, Sacco and Vanzetti, Patti Smith, Bruce Springsteen, Mark Twain, and Malcolm X, to name just a few of the hundreds of voices that appear in Voices of a People's History of the United States.
This volume is identical in size and format to Zinn's A People's History, and the 24 chapters parallel the chapters in that book.
Zinn writes short introductions to the texts, which range in length from letters or poems of less than a page to entire speeches and essays that run several pages or longer. Voices is a symphony of our nation's original voices, rich in ideas and actions, the embodiment of the power of civil disobedience and dissent wherein lies our nation's true spirit of defiance and resilience.
