The origins of the Free Speech Movement at the University of California–Berkeley begin with the May 1960 House Un-American Activities Committee hearings at San Francisco City Hall, the development of the counterculture of the 1960s in Berkeley, California, and end with People's Park in 1969. This film features 15 student activists and archival footage of Mario Savio, Todd Gitlin, Joan Baez, the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Huey Newton, Allen Ginsberg, Gov. Ronald Reagan and “The Grateful Dead”; and it was dedicated to Fred Cody, founder of Cody's Books. “Berkeley in the Sixties” was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature.
