A Song for Cesar, a film honoring Cesar Chavez, founder of the UFW, and the music of the farmworker movement

The Mexico, the Americas, and Spain (MAS) Program and the Office of Student Inclusion, Belonging, and Engagement will screen a wonderful new documentary that tells the story of Cesar Chávez’s leadership of the United Farm Workers as they struggled for union representation and better wages, housing, and working conditions for migrant workers in the United States. A Song for Cesar highlights the support given to la causa by musicians, actors, and writers, ranging from Carlos Santana, to Joan Baez, Maya Angelou, Edward James Olmos, and Taj Mahal. The film will be presented by the filmmakers, Andrés Alegría and Abel Sánchez, and Arturo Rodríguez, president emeritus of the United Farm Workers. They will talk about why it is important to keep the memory of the farmworker struggle alive and how music and the arts have played a role in doing that.
