Matt Damon reads from Howard Zinn’s speech “The Problem is Civil Obedience” (November 1970). Matt isn’t asking you to start a revolution, but when you hear this, you might anyway!
He’s reading excerpts that Howard Zinn gave in 1970 as part of a debate on civil disobedience. This performance was part of “The People Speak, Live!” with Matt Damon and Lupe Fiasco at the Metro in Chicago, on January 31, 2012, The Chicago Youth Poetry Festival.
