The fight in the fields : Cesar Chavez and the farmworkers' struggle( Visual )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This historical documentary tells the story of Cesar Chavez, the charismatic founder of the National Farm Workers Association, which later became the United Farm Workers, and the movement that he inspired. The heart of the UFW, Chavez remains the most important Latino leader in this country's history. The activities he and his dedicated organizers led inspired the Chicano activism of the 1960's and '70's, helping to create a Latino civil rights movement. This documentary examines the grape and lettuce boycotts and the non-violent movements of the 1960s and 1970s that confronted conservative politicians like Ronald Reagan and the powerful Teamsters Union and inspired Chicano activism. This chapter of American history recounts an inspiring story of hope and courage against overwhelming odds, a story of poor people taking control of their lives. This documentary uses archival footage, newsreels, and contemporary interviews with activists, politicians, and Chavez family members
