Description
In this radio program, Cesar Chavez, President of the National Farm Workers Association, speaks in Berkeley on January 5, 1966 under the auspices of Citizens for Farm Labor about the progress of the Delano Grape Strike and the history of the National Farm Workers Association. He is introduced by Henry Anderson, Chairman of Citizens for Farm Labor. In his introduction, Anderson traces Chavez's beginnings as a farm hand to his work with Fred Ross and the Community Service Organization (CSO) to his organization of the Farm Workers Association. Chavez then speaks on his philosophy of political organization, his creation of an insurance program and credit union for farm workers, previous strikes, and the Delano Grape Strike. Four months into the historic strike, Chavez speaks on his conviction that the strike will continue for as long as the workers continue to have support. He speaks about the growers' violence against the workers, saying, "It's going to a lot more than [violence] to discourage us." The Delano Gr
