Alonzo King Meets Howard Zinn

When the company performed in Boston, I had lunch with Howard Zinn. We spoke for several hours about his life, the civil rights movement, politics, and art.

He was easy to laugh and easy to cry. I don’t remember experiencing an adult so alive. We talked about doing a project together. It was a shock to find out that he left his body a week after meeting him.

It was an unforgettable experience and for me an important exchange.
