LATINOPIA TEATRO “EL TEATRO CAMPESINO 3″

By 1967, the protracted strike by farm workers against California grape growers has reached national proportions. The Teatro Campesino, whose principal members now included Luis Valdez, Daniel Valdez, Agustín Lira and Felipe Cantú, was now an indispensable arm of the struggle. But soon other issues began to intrude into the teatro. Foremost among these issues was the war in Vietnam.
