 The Free Speech Movement Cafe 
 Opening Event #1 - Feb 3, 2000

Page 1 of 4 of Photos 

On the afternoon of Feb. 3, 2000 UC-Berkeley hosted an Open House at the new Free Speech Movement Cafe in Moffitt Library on the UC Berkeley campus for FSM Veterans, the press, UC Officials and others involved with the new cafe. Attendance and spirits were high and a lot of old friends saw each other again. These photos were taken that afternoon and early evening.

The following evening (Feb. 4, 2000) there was a private celebration hosted by Steve Silberstein and Ann Lipow (who funded the Cafe's construction in honor of Mario and the FSM) just for FSM Vets and friends. The photos for that 2nd event will be here soon and will be linked from this page.

Below, various members of the press covered the event. Helen Nestor, photographer of many of the events of the 60-70s in Berkeley is shown here seated. Her famous photo of Sproul Hall with the F-S-M Banners hanging from the 2nd floor front during the Sit-In is one of the photos used in the huge wall mural in the FSM Cafe.
