  • THIS WEEK:   50 Year Anniversary of the Free Speech Movement. The Free Speech Movement began September 14, 1964, marking the 50 year anniversary this month. It began when the University of California at Berkeley announced that existing university regulations banning political activity on campus would be strictly enforced. The resulting protests, unprecedented in scope, were the harbinger of the student power, civil liberties, and antiwar demonstrations that convulsed college campuses throughout the country for the next decade. American playwright, social activist and author Barbara Garson joins us to talk about the Free Speech Movement and her most famous work MacBird.
