Mario Savio
The Free Speech Movement

Reginald E. Zelnik

University of California Press

This chapter focuses on the positive qualities of Mario Savio and his legacy. It discusses how the dialogical quality of his speeches engaged students at the level of their own apprehensions and how he turned thousands of students into a united voice for free speech, persuading a complacent faculty to accede to the Free Speech Movement's (FSM) demands. It also highlights how the FSM and the work of Savio helped ignite the anti-Vietnam War protests.

Keywords:   Mario Savio, speeches, students, free speech, FSM, anti-Vietnam War protests
