Big Think, the online think tank whose mission is to deliver progressive insights from a variety of disciplines and perspectives, had a chance to sit down with Howard Zinn, educator and historian, who died yesterday at 87 years young.In one of his final interviews, Zinn said that what he wanted to be remembered by was as "somebody who gave people a feeling of hope and power that they didn't have before."Amen to that.Here is the first of three interviews. And be sure to check out the second and third installments here.Image via Democracy Now.
