The talk was billed as addressing the subject "Is Democracy Possible?" That title really didn't reflect the talk that Zinn actually gave, in which he addresses the historical events in his own life that shaped his work as a historian, teacher and activist. In the talk, Zinn makes clear that organized resistance is the key to building democracy. He also makes clear the undemocratic and anti-democratic intent of the framers of the Constitution, and how it reflected the class struggles of 18th century America. Following the Zinn talk, some news and announcements about a boycott of Clear Channel Communications and the fight for media democracy.
