This Saturday, April 4, Fiesta Marketplace and the Dolores Huerta Foundation present a free showing of Viva La Causa, starting at 6PM and running until 8PM.
Here's the skinny from the back of the flyer:
On a warm evening in 1965, hundreds of Mexican farm-workers packed into a church hall in the small farming town of Delano, California. A momentous decision lay before them–should they join a strike against California grape growers started 11 days prior by their Filipino counterparts?
Would this improve their appalling working conditions in the fields and help them earn enough to feed their families?
Viva La Causa tells the story of how the powerless stood up to the powerful and gained their victory, not by violence and weapons, but by their strong will.
I love a good story when people from different races come together for a greater cause.
The Yost Theatre is located at:
307 N. Spurgeon Street
Santa Ana, 92701
It's like a 10 minute walk from our place, no need to drive folks.
When the show is over, don't forget to check out the Downtown Santa Ana Art Walk.
