Cesar Chavez grew up with my mother, as children my mother told me many stories about Cesar Chavez.

During the Farm workers Revolution in the 1960s, Cesar Chavez visited our Coachella Valley home for lunches and dinners.

My parents talked about their good time as young people.

One day Cesar Chavez moved away, later that year I found out he moved to Delano California, I was in middle school at that time. I heard he met Bobby Kennedy.
