"No grapes for over 40 years"

No grapes for over 40 years

I was 12 years old when the grape strike began in l965.  It lasted 5 years and when I became aware in high school of the injustices towards the farm workers I began my boycott of not eating grapes.  Cesar Chavez has been my hero ever since and as a reminder of the continued abuse that currently exists I still do not eat table grapes.  When I am offered grapes and refuse them it gives me the opportunity to tell others the story of Cesar Chavez. 
I must admit that I do drink wine.
