Savio risked his life to register black voters in Mississippi in the Freedom Summer of 1964 and did more than anyone to bring daring forms of non-violent protest from the civil rights movement to the struggle for free speech and academic freedom on American campuses. Drawing upon previously unavailable Savio papers, as well as oral histories from friends and fellow movement leaders, Freedoms Orator illuminates Marios egalitarian leadership style, his remarkable eloquence, and the many ways he embodied the youthful idealism of the 1960s.

The book also narrates, for the first time, his second phase of activism against Reaganite Imperialism in Central America and the corporatization of higher education. Including a generous selection of Savios speeches, Freedoms Orator speaks with special relevance to a new generation of activists and to all who cherish the 60s and democratic ideals for which Savio fought so selflessly.
