Julz Chavez to visit KCS schools to discuss her great uncle, Cesar's, legacy and struggle for equal rights
Julz Chavez, great-niece of Cesar Chavez, will be visiting Central, HVA, and Farragut High on Friday, April 4. She will be speaking with students about Cesar's role in the struggle for equal rights for all. She will also discuss part of her documentary about Cesar, which will focus on telegrams that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. sent to Chavez about the potential for combining their efforts; these recently discovered telegrams will be central to her film. This series of discussions is sponsored by HoLa (Hora Latina) and the WL and ELL Departments in KCS. It is part of the city's year-long series of events commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act.
