Voices of a People’s History honors the centenary of historian Howard Zinn (1922–2010), author of the classic bestseller A People’s History of the United States, with a new conversation series hosted by the archivist and memory worker Zakiya Collier. Together, Collier and her guests draw from Zinn’s example of interrogating key moments of the historical record via documents, images, and recordings to create an illuminating dialogue on what the past can teach contemporary audiences. Lincoln Center’s poet-in-residence Mahogany L. Browne (Black Girl Magic) and poet Cheryl Boyce-Taylor (Mama Phife Represents) will join Collier to discuss selections from Sister Outsider, collected essays from the iconic activist, author, and poet Audre Lorde. Browne and Taylor will also read some vital passages of the book.
