"Great Grape Boycott of the 70's"

Great Grape Boycott of the 70's

I was in a San Bernardino, Calif. Junior High school in the early 70’s when the UFW, under Cesar Chavez’s leadership declared a boycott of grapes and purchases at the Safeway Stores markets.

Even then la gente was actively aware of the rights of farmworkers and La Raza as a whole, even including the next generation of schoolage teenagers that are now adults.
