This chapter examines the politics of authenticity of Mario Savio. It evaluates whether his authenticity both had a public and a private quality and investigates the source and character of Savio's charisma, which seems largely to have been a public phenomenon. It describes the reputation and people's impression of Savio during the 1960s and clarifies his role in the Free Speech Movement (FSM).

Keywords:   Mario Savio, politics of authenticity, charisma, public phenomenon, FSM
