About the life of the civil rights activist Cesar Chavez.

Storyboard Text

  • Cesar was born in Yuma, Arizona in 1927. As a child, Cesar's home was stolen by deceitful Anglo people.
  • Mean Anglos
  • Because of that, Cesar and his family had to move back and forward between farms all over California, where they were put under grueling conditions, like having no clean water.
  • In the 60's, Cesar led a 340-MILE march from Delano to Sacramento. He also did a 36 day fast in 1988. He did all of this because of migrant workers (like himself) not having equal payments to a non-migrant worker. He also did this because of the peril of using pesticides.
  • In 1988, Cesar went on a 36 day fast, which means no food. That means he lived off water for 36 DAYS!
  • When Cesar finished his fast, Reverend Jesse Jackson continued the fast, then passed it on to other celebrities like Whoopi Goldberg, Emilio Estevez and even Kerry Kennedy!
  • Sadly, in 1993, Cesar passed away in San Luis, Arizona. He lived for 66 years. He went on to say "You are never strong enough that you don't need help."
  • R.I.P
