The "Remembering Howard Zinn" session April 9, co-sponsored by HAW and the
Labor and Working Class History Association (LAWCHA) at the Organization of
American Historians annual meeting, was well attended and warm-spirited.  An

featured speech at the session is also on the Zinn Education Project site
