Free Speech Movement 50th Anniversary Celebration

“This fall, the University of California, Berkeley, marked the 50th anniversary of the Free Speech Movement with several dozen special classes, an experiential program for students built around the biography of movement leader Mario Savio, sing-ins and a political poetry reading, a film series, panel discussions and lectures, a reunion of activists, an Oct. 1 rally on Sproul Plaza, concerts and more.”

The University Chorus, Chamber Chorus, and Gospel Chorus along with C.K. Ladzekpo and some of the drummers from the African Music Ensemble, joined by Danza In Xochitl In Cuicatl led a sing-in on the Sproul Hall steps on September 23 at 5pm to sing some of the songs from the sixties. The evening was beautiful, the choruses sang beautifully with the public enthusiastically contributing their voices.
