"The People Speak" Tonight On The History Channel

THE PEOPLE SPEAK -- the long-awaited documentary film inspired by Howard Zinn's books "A People's History of the United States" and "Voices of a People's History of the United States" will air tonight on the History Channel.

THE PEOPLE SPEAK will feature dramatic performances chronicling the history of this country, including charter documents, letters, diaries and more, from such celebrities as Matt Damon, Josh Brolin, Viggo Mortensen, David Strathairn, Marisa Tomei, Don Cheadle, Jasmine Guy, Q’orianka Kilcher, Michael Ealy, Kerry Washington, and musical performances from Bruce Springsteen, Eddie Vedder, Allison Moorer and John Legend. These slices of life will be woven together with archival footage and interviews.

In Janesville, tune in to Charter channel 48 at 7 PM and again at 11 PM.

Strangely enough, in Saturday's Janesville Gazette was a letter to the editor slamming Howard Zinn's "People" books as both Marxist biased and Marxist titled.
