United Farm Worker’s President and American civil rights icon César Estrada Chávez died on April 23, 1993 at the age of 66 years. A week prior to his death, he was on a national tour to call attention to deadly pesticides that were being used in the fields where farm workers labored. This brought him to Chicago, Illinois where he delivered his last public speech before a Latino audience at the National Museum of Mexican Art. In his speech he spoke not just about pesticides but also about the importance of art in our lives.
