For Labor Day [Anthony McCarthy]

Been looking for the sequence from The People Speak when Marisa Tomei reads the words of Genora Dollinger and found it in this interview of Howard Zinn by Bill Moyers. The entire interview is well worth the time to listen to it but Marisa Tomei's performance begins about 4:45. It's thrilling. As is Christian Kirk's reading of Susan B. Anthony's refusal to pay the fine when she was convicted of trying to vote, at about 12:30.
