The Free Speech Movement in Berkeley, Calfiornia was pivotal in shaping 1960s America. Led by Mario Savio and other young veterans of the civil rights movement, student activists organized what was to that point the most tumultuous student rebellion in American history. Mass sit-ins, a nonviolent blockade around a police car, occupations of the campus administration building, and a student strike united thousands of students to champion the right of students to free speech and unrestricted political advocacy on campus.
This compendium of influential speeches and previously unknown writings offers insight and perspective into the disruptive yet nonviolent civil disobedience tactics used by Savio. "The Essential Mario Savio" is the perfect introduction to an American icon and to one of the most important social movements of the post-war period in the United States.
