Mario Savio Remembered: Exceprts from His 1994 Speech & Commemoration of His Life

December 09, 1996

About a month after the death of Mario Savio, we feature a 1994 speech he made about the roots of the Free Speech Movement and its relevance to the current struggles; and play excerpts from speeches at his memorial by Jack Weinberg and Bettina Aptheker. Weinberg recalls the roots of Savio’s work in the civil rights struggle, particularly his participation in Freedom Summer, and reflect on the victories won by the Free Speech Movement. Aptheker remembers Savio’s integrity, humanity, and commitment to collective struggle.
