Farmworker Movement Documentation Project - Presented by the UC San Diego Library


To understand the passion of the farmworker movement and appreciate the personal sacrifices made by striking farmworkers and volunteers, the viewer needs to hear the music, look at the photos, view the videos, listen to the spoken word, and examine the relics.

September 2015: The Library is working on converting media files from this site from a format no longer supported by most browsers to more readily accessible and supportable formats.
