Summary
"Cesar Chavez overcame huge obstacles, including extreme poverty and the prejudice that he experienced as a Hispanic American and a migrant farmer, to achieve his goal of helping to organize the first successful union for America's farm workers. As a union activist, he promoted the use of nonviolent strikes, boycotts and protests to help farm workers obtain better pay and working conditions, and forever changed the relationship between farm owners and workers. In this fascinating portrait, kids will examine the life of this dedicated labor leader, whose determination to help others gave thousands a voice and the power to change things for the better in this country"--Container
