Howard Zinn on Alice Walker, His Former Student

The late Howard Zinn gave one of his final interviews for the first film biography of Alice Walker, "Alice Walker: Beauty in Truth." Zinn first met Walker when she became his student at Spelman College. In this web exclusive outtake from the film, Zinn likens Alice Walker to Zora Neale Hurston, Walker's "hero," saying Walker was not afraid to offend either whites or blacks. She was honest.
