The legendary El Teatro Campesino was born out of the struggle of the United Farm Workers Union with which the group was affiliated from 1965 to 1968. The original members of the group included Luis Valdez, Agustín Lira, Felipe Cantú and Daniel Valdez. This is the first of  three videos that chronicle the formation and activities of the early Teatro Campesino.  Latinopia thanks Luis Valdez, Agustin Lira and Daniel Valdez for their interviews and thanks Leroy Chatfield and the Farmworkers Movement Documentation Project for the use of photos of the early Teatro Camepsino.
