"Sí se puede." It means " Yes, it can be done." This was Cesar Chavez' motto.

Cesar Estrada Chavez was one of the greatest labor leaders in the United States. He fought for a better life for migrant farm workers, founded the first successful farm workers' union, and was the president of the United Farm Workers of America, AFL-CIO. Cesar accomplished this with a philosophy of non-violence.

In 1994, the Cesar E. Chavez Foundation was created to maximize human potential to improve the world by preserving, promoting, and applying the legacy and universal values of civil rights and farm leader Cesar E. Chavez.

Archives - Trivia Question

 


Did you know Rosa Parks has been called the "Mother of the Civil Rights Movement?"

Yes. The Civil Rights Movement helped make it illegal for people to discriminate against other people based on their race, color, religion, or nationality. Rosa Parks received many honors for her work in Civil Rights, including the Spingarn Medal, the Martin Luther King, Jr. Nonviolent Peace Prize, the Eleanor Roosevelt Woman of Courage Award, and the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Also, Cleveland Avenue in Montgomery, Alabama, (the street where Rosa boarded the bus on December 1, 1955) was renamed Rosa Parks Boulevard.

Rosa Parks

Did you know Rosa was a guest at the 1999 State of the Union Address and sat next to First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton? President Clinton introduced Rosa by saying, "She's sitting down with the First Lady tonight, and she may get up or not, as she chooses." Today, Rosa lives in Detroit, Michigan. February 4, 2003, marked Rosa Parks 90th Birthday.

Cesar Chavez is my hero for many reasons. He was a great labor leader. He was hard working, persistent, and patient. He improved the lives of many farm workers. And he did all this through non-violent means. I am proud to celebrate Cesar Chavez Day on March 31.

Question:
Where can I find nonfiction books about Sojourner Truth for 3rd graders? (Sue)

Answer:
The IMA Hero™
Sojourner Truth Bookstore is categorized into "ages 4-8" and "ages 9-12," therefore, you may find books relevant to 3rd graders in both categories. We recommend A Picture Book of Sojourner Truth for young readers who are first reading about Sojourner Truth. (We also recommend any "Picture Book" by David A. Adler as an introduction to biographies for young readers.) The Amazon.com review for Walking the Road to Freedom mentions it was a useful book for 3rd grade book reports and biography assignments.
