Historians in the News

Between preparing for the premiere of his documentary and promoting it with the likes of Matt Damon and Viggo Mortensen, historian and activist Howard Zinn found some time to speak with students at Dundee-Crown High School on Tuesday.

After school let out, Zinn fielded questions via teleconference from about 30 students gathered in the school's music wing.

The question-and-answer session with the renowned author of "A People's History of the United States" was part of an ongoing series of talks with major scholars at the Carpentersville high school.

Zinn answered students' questions on topics ranging from the impact of religion on feminism and the role of big business in American domestic and foreign policy.
