Perspectives of a Junior Faculty Member

(p.339) From the Big Apple to Berkeley
The Free Speech Movement

Lawrence W. Levine

University of California Press

This chapter describes the author's experience in the Free Speech Movement (FSM) as a junior faculty member of the University of California, Berkeley, from New York. It explains that he was at first shocked by the Berkeley culture which was very different from the culture of where he came from. He later learned about the left student culture and resumed his civil rights activities by joining the Berkeley branch of the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE). He expresses uncertainty about the enduring impact of the FSM.

Keywords:   faculty member, FSM, University of California, Berkeley, left student culture, New York, civil rights, CORE
