I was a member of the One World Family commune in Berkeley in 1970 - 1972. We ran natural food restaurants in the Bay Area. We participated in the Grape Boycott from the very beginning with high honor and determination. That is when I learned the meaning of “si se puede” and “viva la raza.” As a kid growing up in the Southwest I was proud to be part of the movement and I still am.
Many years later I became friends with Art Torres who regaled me with stories of driving Cesar around in a beat up old station wagon accompanied by his cabbage eating dog, back in the day.
