50 Years of Free Speech…

28 Apr

…more or less.

Every summer, we ask UC Berkeley faculty, staff, and students for recommendations of readings to share with the incoming freshmen.  This year’s theme is “Free Speech,” in keeping with the 50th anniversary of the Free Speech Movement here on campus, when Mario Savio and others threw themselves on the gears of the machine at Sproul Plaza.

Some good recommendations on here, not all of them limited to people and events at Berkeley.  Check it:
