Voices of a People’s History: Student Performance
May 31 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pmFree
This seventh iteration of the annual Voices of a People’s History series at Lincoln Center brings to life the work of Brooklyn-born author, activist, and academic Howard Zinn on his centenary. Zinn’s touchstone book, A People’s History of the United States, documents the vital everyday epics of common people engaged in the life and death struggle for justice: abolitionists, activists, protesters, founders of the first American unions, suffragettes who advanced women’s rights, and pioneers of gay liberation. All of these heroic voices will be performed live by a chorus of young student activists who have been mentored by Voices teaching artists to find personal meaning in these timeless texts.
Presented by Maxine Greene and Judith S. Kaye High Schools
