"Wheaties"

My Dad Wheaties would boycott and march the streets with the late Cesar E Chavez & Dolores Huerta in the late 60’s & 70’s . throughout Delano, LA, Santa Rosa, East Bay Area and other locations. As children we would go to Safeway Stores and Boycott Gallo Wine, Grapes,and I aslo remember boycotting Chevron Gas Station & Farrah pants. i was only 10 years old at that time.

My Dad was a true oraganizer of the Chicano movement and he taught us to stand up for social justice, and for the rights of the people, as this is what Cesar had taught him.

I am truly grateful to have these memories and to carry them on to the next generation of my family.
