NYC. Mario Savio and the 60s Free Speech Movement

Mario Savio and the 60s Free Speech Movement

On Thursday, June 9, at 7:30pm, the Libertarian Book Club's Anarchist Forum will present NYU scholar Robert Cohen speaking on Mario Savio and the 60's Free Speech Movement. Cohen has edited a book on that remarkable period in Berkeley, California which sparked the transforming times in the 60s and 70s, when civil rights, anti-war actions, and radical change became the center of American political life. Cohen's biography of Mario Savio, the hero of the Free Speech Movement, will be published soon and reveal much about Savio that had until now been hidden. After Cohen speaks there will be an open discussion session, where questions can be answered and memories shared.

The event will take place at the New SPACE (the New School for Pluralistic Anti-Capitalist Education) in the Fusion Arts Museum at 57 Stanton Street, Manhattan, one block south of the 2nd Ave-Houston Street F and V subway stop.

There is no set fee for the presentation, but a contribution to aid the LBC is suggested. If you have questions, contact the LBC/Anarchist Forum,
