Description: Bill Moyers remembers historian Howard Zinn during a short segment broadcast two days after Zinn had passed away in Santa Monica, California, at 87 years of age.  Dedicated to peace, civil rights, social justice, the rights of working people, and the importance of nonviolent direct action throughout history, Zinn's life and work had become a significant factor in many ordinary citizens feeling more empowered to create change, as this tribute from his friend Bill Moyers deftly attributes.  This brief segment notably includes excerpts from a conversation between Moyers and Zinn broadcast less than two months earlier on Bll Moyers Journal.
