What I Learned from Cesar Chavez: An Evening with Marc Grossman of the Chavez Foundation

Marc Grossman served as Cesar Chavez’ press secretary, speechwriter and personal aide as he worked alongside the civil rights leader for 24 years. Grossman provides unique insight into the complex life and legacy of Cesar Chavez, including Chavez’ transformational vision of what a union could be and why he was the first to successfully organize farm workers. Grossman is the author of the new foreword to Sal Si Puedes (Escape If You Can), CSUSM’s Sixth Annual Common Read.

Wednesday, November 30th, 6:30-8 pm in USU Ballroom 

Tickets will be available through Arts & Lectures once Fall semester begins.
