About

The Grand Rapids People’s History Project was born about a year after radical historian and author of A People’s History of the United States, Howard Zinn, passed away. This project seeks to use the insurgent and radical people’s history approach that Zinn developed and is being continued through the Zinn Education Project. Our goal is to do research and create media that not only gives voice to the people and movements in Grand Rapids that are often marginalized or ignored by “official” history, but provides a context for the struggles against systems of oppression that have denied people basic rights and the opportunity for collective liberation.
