This chapter focuses on Mario Savio's “little free speech movement” at the University of California, Berkeley, in 1966. It explains that this protest was in objection to Chancellor Roger Heyns' attempt to move the free speech area away from a central campus location and relegate it to more secluded spot, a relatively isolated outdoor dining area which the student activists called the pit. It analyzes this little known movement in order to determine the Free Speech Movement's (FSM) enduring impact on the Berkeley campus and on Savio himself.

Keywords:   Mario Savio, free speech movement, University of California, Berkeley, Roger Heyns, FSM
