Join us for a special event to unveil the purchase of the Farmworkers’ Movement online archive, containing thousands of documents related to the history of the United Farm Workers (UFW) and related events.
A short video on the farmworkers’ union (NFWA/UFW) historic march to Sacramento in 1966 will be shown, followed by a discussion with two key participants in the march: Roberto Bustos, who was named march captain by Chávez, and LeRoy Chatfield, a key Chávez advisor in the first decade of the union.
Read the full event description. This event is free and open to the public.
Co-sponsored by UCSD’s Chicano/a-Latino/a Arts & Humanities (CLAH) Program, Cesar Chavez Celebration Committee, LAUC-SD Diversity Committee and The Library.
