‘Hailing César’: Grandson of popular labor rights icon to visit Orange Coast College

Eduardo Chavez, grandson of well-known civil rights activist César Chavez, will screen his documentary “Hailing Cesar” at Orange Coast College on Tuesday, March 19 at 6 p.m. in the College’s Fine Art Lecture Hall.

The event will include a viewing of the 60-minute documentary and will be followed by a discussion by Chavez, and Sirous Thampi, the film’s producer. The film includes animation, interviews, archival and current footage and music by Macklemore and other artists.

The younger Chavez grew up in the Bay Area and played golf professionally before deciding to work in the fields of Northern California in order to better understand the struggles of farmworkers. He hopes by sharing his story to inspire, motivate and educate audiences about an important chapter in American history.

The screening is free to attend and the public is invited to attend.
