Power of Story: The People Speak


Thursday, January 30, 3:00 p.m.
Egyptian Theatre, 328 Main St.

Inspired by the work of the late historian Howard Zinn (A People’s History of the United States), this event brings to life, through readings and songs, the voices of rebels, dissenters, and visionaries from our past—and present.

This live performance features poet Staceyann Chin, Festival juror Sian Clifford (Fleabag), Ethan Hawke (Tesla), singer-songwriter Celisse Henderson, Viggo Mortensen (Falling), Ntare Guma Mbaho Mwine (Farewell Amor), and singer-songwriter Meshell Ndegeocello with guitarist Christopher Bruce. Anthony Arnove (co-director of The People Speak with Howard Zinn) narrates.
