Democracy is not a spectator sport. Using dramatic and musical
performances of the letters, diaries and speeches of everyday
Americans, 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
Howard Zinn and based on his best-selling books, A People's History of the United States and 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. Their Web site includes a video trailer and a classroom study guide.
