'Papi Me and Cesar Chavez'
Papi, Me and Cesar Chavez, chronicles the United Farm Workers’ Union’s (UFW) historic march from Delano, California to the state capitol in Sacramento, as seen through the eyes of 10-year-old Gloria, the writer. After her father’s initial reluctance to join the strike, Gloria is motivated by her encounters with UFW leader Cesar Chavez to join the march and she takes her Papi with her.
This is a landmark production chronicling the turbulence of the time. The 340- mile march from Delano to Sacramento drew national attention to the suffering of farm workers, and brought about the first actual union contract between a grower and farm workers’ union in US history.
