Cesar Chavez Visits Denver

On February 12, 1973, Cesar Chavez stopped in Denver on his way to Chicago and Boston to speak to groups about the recent lettuce boycotts. Exhausted and three hours late, Chavez spoke to over 2000 Chican@ supporters in the gymnasium at St. Andrew Avelino Seminary. According to John G. White at the Denver Post, the large number of supporters resulted in  Chavez splitting the group into two waves where he delivered speeches and anecdotes concerning the recent huelgas (strikes) and played the film "Si Se Puede". ~Amy Hernandez
