Fifty Years of Free Speech: Perspectives on the Movement that Revolutionized Berkeley is a retrospective look at the actions of students on the Berkeley campus during the seminal university protest movement of 1964. It includes first-hand accounts of the events, primary sources from news coverage of the day, and art created in response to those turbulent times. Written and edited by current staff at The Daily Californian, this anniversary publication draws heavily from the newspaper’s archives, with commentary to contextualize the often impenetrable editorials written with strict university oversight. From the now-independent offices of The Daily Californian, this book was created to commemorate the events that defined forever the character of UC Berkeley on the world’s stage.
