Today, the world lost a leading progressive voice–Howard Zinn.
Howard was the author of many books, but his People’s History of the United States was perhaps his best-known and most influential.
His public life was exemplary, but he was also a dear, dear man and he will be sorely missed.
At the Soapbox, our hearts are broken and our love and support go out to his children and grandchildren.
