A People’s History of the United States, a landmark book by Howard Zinn, teaches the true history of the United States through the lens of the people. We know that the history taught at schools is often biased towards the wealthy and ignorant of the experiences of everyday people, but Howard Zinn is here to change that. From the times of America’s colonization up to the late 20th Century, Zinn explains history through the lens of Native Americans, African Americans, factory workers, American women, the working poor, and migrant laborers. Zinn shows the power of the people to win major battles, such as women’s and Black suffrage, the eight hour workday, laws against child labor, and more.
