RIP Howard Zinn

If you've never read A People's History of the United States, now would be an excellent time to do so. Radical, controversial genius Howard Zinn passed away yesterday at the age of 87. A lifelong activist and celebrated revisionist, he spoke openly for the rights of those suffering from injustice, and worked to shed light on subjects left long hidden in the dark.

He was a great man. I have immense respect for all he did.

When I was in grad school, Zinn was considered too partisan and too indebted to a particular view of history for me to use him a source for a paper.
