En Homenaje a César Chávez: The Photographs of María Pinedo
Fall 2003, Rosenberg Library & Learning Resources, 4th Floor

En Homenaje a César Chávez En Homenaje a César Chávez: Photographs from the Coachella Valley, Summer 1973, by Maria Pinedo. During the United Farm Workers strike conducted in the Coachella Valley in California in the summer of 1973, thirty years ago, thousands of strikers were arrested for violating anti-picketing injunctions. Hundreds were beaten and dozens were shot at. Two were murdered. In response to the violence against strikers, César Chávez called off the strike and began a second grape strike as an alternative strategy to get growers to recognize the rights of farm workers. To this day, the United Farm Workers continue to organize and struggle to dignify the work of farmworkers in the minds of the growers and the people of California. It may come as a surprise to City College students that some of their own instructors began their lives as child laborers in the fields of California's Central Valley.
