1. In October 2003, months after the United States launchaed its brutal, criminal war on the people of Iraq, historian Howard Zinn sat down with actor Woodly Harrelson for a provocative, humorous, wide ranging conversation.

  3. In memory of Howard Zinn (1922-2010) and in appreciation of his life's work, the Brooklyn Historical Society and the Brooklyn Navy Yard Development Corporation would like to share excerpts from an interview we conducted with Howard Zinn on December 8, 2008.

    Howard Zinn was an historian, activist, playwright, and author of more than twenty books including A People’s History of the United States.

    In these (very) roughly edited clips, Howard Zinn talks about growing up in Brooklyn, working as an apprentice shipfitter in the Brooklyn Navy Yard, and his first date with his future wife (who had passed away 7 months prior to this interview).

    This interview was conducted by Daniella Romano, Director of the Brooklyn Navy Yard Archive on December 8, 2008.

    More excerpts from this interview will be used in a forthcoming exhibition at the Brooklyn Navy Yard Center at Building 92, scheduled to open in fall 2011.

    The full interview is available at the Brooklyn Navy Yard Archive and the Brooklyn Historical Society's Othmer Library.
