The Free Speech Movement

This chapter describes the author's experience in the Free Speech Movement (FSM) as a faculty member of the University of California, Berkeley. It explains that the author came to Berkeley less than two months before the great free speech rebellion began and the administration saw his appointment as a subversive ruse because of his Communist background and radical organizing experience as a youth. It discusses his meeting with Mario Savio and other student leaders of the FSM and relates how the faculty related to the FSM and to the student upheavals of the sixties.

Keywords:   faculty member, FSM, University of California, Berkeley, Communist background, free speech rebellion, radical organizing experience, Mario Savio, student upheavals
