Berkeley has long been recognized for its activism. In the 1960's, students at the University of California were responsible for the Free Speech Movement. National Public Radio personality, Margot Adler, recalls this time in her memoir, Heretic's Heart, as well as the Civil Rights Movement, which many students actively supported, and protests against the Viet Nam War. The spirit of activism made Berkeley a hotbed for young, American hippies, and the city remains politically and socially active to this day.
