Show Summary Details


This chapter relates the author's recollection of his experience in the Free Speech Movement (FSM) as Presbyterian minister serving at the University of California, Berkeley. It explains that when the free speech controversy began, there was a general sense of sympathy for the protesting students and their cause among these campus ministry people. Although church-related students were not prominent in the FSM leadership, they were quite active in the movement, and a fairly high percentage of those arrested in Sproul Hall were members of campus religious organizations.
