THE PEOPLE SPEAK COLLEGE TOUR is a national campus tour for the forthcoming documentary film The People Speak. The tour will bring the film's producers and cast members to eight universities across the country for live readings, clip screenings, and in-depth discussion.

Using dramatic and musical performances of the letters, diaries and speeches of everyday Americans, The People Speak gives voice to those who spoke up for social change throughout U.S. history, forging a nation from the bottom up with their insistence on equality and justice.

Narrated by Howard Zinn and based on his best-selling books, A People's History of the United States and, with Anthony Arnove, Voices of a People's History, THE PEOPLE SPEAK illustrates the relevance of these passionate historical moments to our society today.

THE PEOPLE SPEAK is produced by Matt Damon, Josh Brolin, Chris Moore, Anthony Arnove and Howard Zinn, and features Damon, Brolin, Rosario Dawson, Bob Dylan, Morgan Freeman, John Legend, Viggo Mortensen, Bruce Springsteen, Marisa Tomei, and Kerry Washington.

THE PEOPLE SPEAK COLLEGE TOUR at BOSTON UNIVERSITY brings HOWARD ZINN and his co-executive producer CHRIS MOORE (Project Greenlight, Good Will Hunting, American Pie) and actor DAVID STRATHAIRN (Bourne Ultimatum, Good Night and Good Luck) to BU for live performance, highlights from the film, and discussion with students.
