On Dec. 7, the 2020 Howard Zinn Memorial Lecture featured Ibram X. Kendi in conversation with Nina Silber. "Well, first, let me just say that I'm just truly honored that I was selected to be a part of this memorial event. For of course, Howard Zinn, who I just certainly admire, and really learned tremendously from him in terms of how to be an engaged and active scholar."
At the White House Conference on American History, speakers (including President Trump) attacked Howard Zinn, the New York Times 1619 Project, and the Zinn Education Project. As Brett Wilkins reported at Common Dreams, "Educators fired back a series of tweets defending the project and accusing the president of spreading 'McCarthy-like' and 'fascist' ideas."
