PRA Archive #: 

A day-by-day documentary of the Free Speech Movement in 1964, recorded by staff members of KPFA on the Berkeley Campus of the University of California. Part one.
In mid-September, the Dean of Students at the University of California at Berkeley informed student political organizations that they would no longer be allowed to use the campus to solicit funds or to advocate off-campus political activity. The ban covered civil rights groups, and several different political parties. Most of these groups, about 20 in all, coalesced into a coordinating organization, the Free Speech Movement, or FSN. The students negotiated with the administration for about two weeks, then, with no agreement or reversal of the ban, decided to protest on October 1 and 2, 1964, with demonstrations continuing through December 3, 1964, including the sit-in at Sproul Hall. KPFA produced a day-by-day documentary of the Free Speech Movement in 1964, recorded by KPFA staff members, which includes speeches, musical performances, and actualities. The documentary was sold as an album available for sale through the KPFA Folio beginning in late December, 1964.
