UCPC: Hispanic Heritage Week Movie: Cesar Chavez

6:00pm CDT September 19

Texan Hall

A biography of the civil-rights activist and labor organizer Cesar Chavez.
**2 SHOWINGS: 6P & 8P**
Texan Hall Theater


Chronicling the birth of a modern American movement, Cesar Chavez tells the story of the famed civil rights leader and labor organizer torn between his duties as a husband and father and his commitment to securing a living wage for farm workers. Passionate but soft-spoken, Chavez embraced non-violence as he battled greed and prejudice in his struggle to bring dignity to people. Chavez inspired millions of Americans from all walks of life who never worked on a farm to fight for social justice. His triumphant journey is a remarkable testament to the power of one individual’s ability to change the world.
