How the Berkeley Grads Organized to Win

(p.170) Endgame
The Free Speech Movement

Steve Weissman

University of California Press

This chapter describes the author's experience the as a graduate student member of the Free Speech Movement (FSM) at the University of California, Berkeley. It suggests that the FSM was not a big deal and that only as part of the larger civil rights and antiwar movements did the fight for free speech on the Berkeley campus make on any lasting significance. It explains the concept of an endgame plan that secured the famous victory for the Berkeley FSM.

Keywords:   graduate student, FSM, University of California, Berkeley, civil rights movement, antiwar movement, free speech
