"Hola uvas!"

Hola uvas!

I heard Cesar speak in late ‘72 at Michigan State University, I was enchanted by his mild manner way of speaking, yet more powerful than anyone I’d heard address a large crowd. He told a story of an old lady who approached him on a picket line one day, during the grape boycott, and apologized for being to OLD to walk the picket lines, but ” every time I walk in to the grocery store I walk over to the grapes and squeeze the largest handful I can, ‘hola grapes’ I say, then I do my shopping.”
