LOCATION: Valley Life Sciences Building Room 2050

In 1964, amidst major fights over civil rights in the Bay Area, the UC Berkeley administration restricted student political organizing on campus. The students targeted in particular were involved in sit-ins against racist discrimination of Black workers. The Free Speech Movement demanded and won the right to free speech on campus. At its peak, the FSM organized hundreds of students to occupy Sproul Hall and an army of police was sent onto campus to violently arrest them.

Joel Geier was a Cal student in the 1960s, a friend of Mario Savio, and a key organizer of the FSM student strike, in addition to being a founder of the Berkeley campus Congress of Racial Equality (CORE) chapter. Join Joel Geier for a discussion about the FSM and its relevance to today's resistance against white supremacy and police militarization.
