A Song for Cesar
A screening followed by a discussion with the directors

Date & Time


Location (On-campus)

LeFevre Theatre

Moraga, CA 94575


What started as a simple song that Abel Sanchez wrote to commemorate the work of the late Cesar Chavez, who along with Dolores Huerta, organized the United Farmworkers Union, grew into something much bigger. With the blessings and perspectives of Maya Angela, Dolores Huerta, and many others and the filmmaking partnership with Andres Alegria (who is the co-director) grew into a music video and then a feature-length film. The film takes on the question of what the role of music and art is in building and sustaining a social justice movement as powerful as the United Farmworkers Union. 

We will have a screening at 7pm in LeFerve Theatre on Septebmer 27, 2023—followed by a moderated discussion with Professor Myrna Santiago. This event is brought to you by the Center for Women & Gender Equity in partnership with Women's & Gender Studies, History , Performing Arts, Campus Safety, Residential Experience and the Intercultural Center.
