Historian and author of A People's History of the United States Howard Zinn presents a moral perspective on early America, citing events and movements rarely covered in U.S. history textbooks. In this interview, he discusses Columbus' atrocities against indigenous tribes in the Caribbean, slavery and Abolitionist Movement, colonial massacres against Native Americans that marked the beginning of Westward Expansion, Civil War Indian Removal policies, and the class conflict that shaped the Revolutionary War through army mutinies and veteran's uprisings. A common thread throughout our history is the gap between American ideals of freedom and democracy, and the reality of social divisions, economic inequality, and grassroots organization for constitutional reform.
