Sonoma State to dedicate Savio memorial this week

The Mario Savio Speakers' Corner will be dedicated at Sonoma State University at noon Thursday in a ceremony on the northwest corner of Stevenson Quad, where a special memorial has been created as a site for public speaking.

Savio, who died in 1996, was a leader of the Free Speech Movement at UC Berkeley in the 1960s, a beloved teacher of math, philosophy and the humanities at SSU from 1990-1996 and an eloquent speaker and activist throughout his life.
