A Memorial to Free Speech and Mario Savio

Mario Savio, a beloved teacher of math, philosophy, and the humanities at Sonoma State University from 1990-1996 was one of the leaders of the Free Speech Movement at UC Berkeley in the 1960s. The Mario Savio Speakers' corner on the Sonoma State campus was dedicated on Nov. 15 in his honor and more than 125 people attended representing the years he worked on campus and the lives he touched. Speakers included his wife, Lynne Hollander Savio, Elaine Sundberg, Victor Garlin, Mette Adams and Andre Bailey. The speakers' corner now stands as a spot where free speech can thrive on campus.
