Synopsis by Jason Buchanan

Contemplate the powerful vision of those who would risk their livelihood to articulate their vision for a brighter future as intellectual speakers Howard Zinn and Anthony Arnove present selective testimonials of U.S. citizens who struggled against such evils as oppression, exploitation, racism, and war. Staged at the New York Society for Ethical Culture in October of 2004 and featuring readings by John Sayles, Brian Jones, Lili Taylor, Leslie Silva, Wallace Shawn, Paul Robeson Jr., and Sarah Jones, this remarkable and inspiring event gave powerful voice to the many brave souls who risked it all to make the nation a better place.
