This chapter provides another author's experience as a student activist in the Free Speech Movement (FSM) at the University of California, Berkeley. It explains that even though the author exercised leadership in the FSM and his impact on the movement was slight, the impact of the movement on him was substantial. It relates his recollections of the year of the FSM and his observations on Mario Savio and the cultural diversity of the FSM that is often missed in its popular representations.
