Mario Savio and the Freedom Struggle in Mississippi and Berkeley

(p.83) Holding One Another
The Free Speech Movement

Waldo Martin

University of California Press

This chapter examines the experiences of Mario Savio in the freedom struggle in Mississippi and Berkeley, California. It explains that Savio experienced violence because of his participation in the Mississippi Summer Project and suggests that his development as an activist illustrated the importance of engagement in local civil rights struggle as a springboard to broader realms of activism. Savio brought his civil rights activism and lessons from his early Catholic moral training into the Free Speech Movement (FMS), lessons that strengthened his recognition of the responsibility of white Americans for participating in the antiracist struggle.

Keywords:   Mario Savio, freedom struggle, Mississippi, Berkeley, California, Mississippi Summer Project, civil rights activism, FSM, moral training, antiracist struggle
