This chapter focuses on the life and career of Mario Savio during the 1990s. It suggests that Savio was given a second act on the stage of American history after the Free Speech Movement (FSM) when he taught as an untenured lecturer at the Sonoma State University (SSU) from 1990 to 1996 and where he was reborn an older and perhaps wiser campus radical. It describes his role building the Campus Coalitions for Human Rights and Social Justice (CCHRSJ) and his political activity in Sonoma County until his death in November 1996.
