History

The Free Speech Movement café was created in order to honor the momentous Free Speech Movement that took place on the Berkeley campus. This movement was led by Mario Savio in 1964 where he led students to fight for their right to hold protests and other political activities on the Berkeley campus, therefore exercising their right to free speech[1]. The Free Speech Movement café is a place where current Berkeley students, alumni, and faculty can remember the activism that took place on the campus more than fifty years ago through bulletin boards and exhibits[2].
