Howard Zinn shared his photo.
"The challenge remains. On the other side are formidable forces: money, political power, the major media. On our side are the people of the world and a power greater than money or weapons: the truth.

"Truth has a power of its own. Art has a power of its own. That age old lesson - that everything we do matters - is the meaning of the people's struggle here in the United States and everywhere. A poem can inspire a movement. A pamphlet can spark a revolution. Civil disobedience can arouse people and provoke us to think. When we organize with one another, when we get involved, when we stand up and speak out together, we can create a power no government can suppress." - Howard Zinn, from the essay "If History Is To Be Creative," published in the book A Power Governments Cannot Suppress (City Lights Booksellers & Publishers, 2006).
 
 
This photo was taken in January 2007 in his hometown of Boston during the filming of The People Speak.
