    "The Free Speech Movement was politically the first and most important white student demonstration of the 1960s" (Breines, 1982: 23). This much is well known. What has never been fully appreciated is the extent of the links between Freedom Summer and the Free Speech Movement. It is impossible to know whether the Free Speech Movement would have occurred in the absence of Freedom Summer. What is certain is that for most of the leaders of the Berkeley revolt, the movement was seen as an extension of the civil rights struggle and the Summer Project in particular. The tactical, ideological, and personnel imprint of Freedom Summer was everywhere evident in the events at Berkeley. A review of those events makes the extent of that imprint clear. -- Doug McAdam, Freedom Summer, 1988: 162.
