Cesar Chavez: A Life Lived Well

March 31 marks the birthday of labor activist Cesar Chavez (1927 – 1993). Chavez played an instrumental role in organizing migrant farm workers with the creation of the National Farm Workers Union in 1962.  Mr. Chavez gave his entire adult life to the cause of equal pay and social justice for migrant workers, and that colorful life has been well detailed in numerous books and other items which we happen to have in our collection.

Check out this great clip for more background on Chavez’s remarkable life.
