During the 2011–2012 school year, the non-profit organization Voices of a People’s History (www.peopleshistory.us) will launch a pilot project in Chicago to bring:
+ free educational resources;
+ performing arts programming;
+ documentary film screenings; and,
+ professional development workshops
to educators and students in Chicago Public Schools and in community and education organizations across the city.
Please join us for a free screening of the award-winning documentary film THE PEOPLE SPEAK (www.thepeoplespeak.com) and the opportunity for educators to sign up for and receive the free toolkit!
THE PEOPLE SPEAK is inspired by Howard Zinn's books A People’s History of the United States — first published in 1980 and one of the bestselling history books in the United States — and the companion primary source anthology, Voices of a People's History of the United States, edited with Anthony Arnove.
This beautiful and moving film features the actual words (in letters, songs, poems, speeches, and manifestoes) of rebels, dissenters and visionaries from our past — and present. These dramatic moments in U.S. history are brought to life by a group of remarkable musicians and actors, including Matt Damon, Marisa Tomei, Danny Glover, Josh Brolin, Rosario Dawson, Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan, John Legend, Lupe Fiasco, Kerry Washington, David Strathairn, and many more.
