Arkansas lawmakers are considering a bill to ban books in public schools that were written by historian Howard Zinn.
The best-selling author is known for “A People’s History of the United States,” which was first published in 1980. Zinn’s critics call him a radical liberal.
Adam Kirby teaches social studies at Little Rock Central High School in Arkansas and uses Zinn’s lessons in his classroom. Here & Now’s Robin Young speaks with Kirby about the need to defend the author’s work.
