ALFREDO GUTIÉRREZ, DOLORES HUERTA & FLACO JIMENEZ.
Hola Latinopians! Your Tia here with another week of Latinopia videos and blogs. We continue this week with our best of Latinopia videos with a repost of Dolores Huerta recounting the 1966 UFW Peregrinacion (Pilgrimage). This is the historic march that began in Delano, California with a handful of farmworkers led by César Chávez to call attention to the grape strike undertaken by the newly formed United Farm Workers Union. The march ended in Sacramento, California, the state capital, with thousands of farm worker supporting the grape boycott. This is a must see if you haven’t seen it before! Our other video this week is a visit with renowned Tejano music icon Flaco Jimenez. Flaco explains to Latinopia his many musical styles. Check out our best of Latinopia videos.
