Celebrating Our American Heritage Series: Student Activisim

Student Activism and the Berkeley Free Speech Movement.  Professors Jan de la Mer and Greg Mewbourn.  Fifty years ago, in the fall term of 1964, the administration of the University of California, Berkeley stopped students from political activities on campus. Students insisted that the university administration lift the ban of on-campus political activities and acknowledge the students' right to free speech and academic freedom.  The Free Speech Movement was the first real instance of student activism and led to the resignation of the Berkeley Chancellor and ultimately the election of Ronald Reagan as governor in 1966.
