12/13: Watch Howard Zinn's, "The People Speak," with the Boston ISO!

Join the Boston Branch of the International Socialist Organization as we gather to watch the long overdue premiere of Howard Zinn's, "The People Speak" on the History Channel.

Using dramatic and musical performances of the letters, diaries and speeches of everyday Americans, the documentary feature film 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 acclaimed historian 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 and reminds us never to take liberty for granted.

Come join us for this viewing and let the discussion and organizing begin!

Sunday, Dec 13th, 8-10pm
