[haw-info] HAW Notes (including links to recent articles of interest)

To members and friends of Historians Against the War,

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 account appears on the Zinn Education Project's web site, at http://www.zinnedproject.org/posts/6187.  The full text of Staughton Lynd's featured speech at the session is also on the Zinn Education Project site and is included in the list below.
