The People Speak is a documentary inspired by Howard Zinn's book, A People's History of the United States and from the book he co-authored with Anthony Arnove, Voices of a People's History. These are the voices of resistance in U.S. history -- resistance to injustice, to war. Voices that can inspire viewers to recognize the power ordinary people have to change the course of history. These are also the voices that are excluded from traditional histories. Some voices are obscure, some famous and you will hear them express ideas that are excluded from the orthodox histories.
