A new edition of Howard Zinn's landmark memoir that chronicles his lifelong commitment to social justice and steadfast belief that ordinary people can change history
In You Can't Be Neutral on a Moving Train, legendary activist, author, and educator Howard Zinn chronicles more than thirty years of fighting for social change, from his teenage years as a laborer in Brooklyn to teaching at Spelman College during the civil rights movement alongside Alice Walker and Marian Wright Edelman. A former bombardier in World War II, Zinn later became an outspoken antiwar activist and led spirited protests against the Vietnam War while a professor at Boston University. With a new foreword from activist and author Rebecca Solnit, this revised edition will energize a new generation of readers looking for hope and inspiration.
