Pilgrimage, Penance, and Revolution: Cesar Chavez

This is a new genre that some of the students in PO 2302 Civic Engagement & Social Action decided to attempt above and beyond their actual assignment to help our class design ways to disseminate their research and presentations beyond our small group. To qualify to publish, students had to further edit their work and make the presentation more engaging by following a story arc and by removing most text and adding transition and morphing effects wherever possible. I am grateful to my entire class this Fall 2022 for taking on this challenge and for working above and beyond their course requirements to help us experiment with a new format for publishing on the StMU Research Scholars website Project coordinated by Dr Brad Whitener.

  2. Great video, very informative, and also congratulations on your nomination. Cesar Chavez’s words were really impactful and important to those who were farm workers. I knew very little about him and I got a good a lot of good information from the video. I was not aware of many things like he went to the navy or that they did the 25-day fast. Overall great video and hoping for more in the future.

  5. First, congratulations on your nomination! Cesar Chavez is such an important figure in Mexican American history, and his fight for farm workers gave a voice to Mexican Americans. I’ve heard of Cesar Chavez before, but I didn’t know he served in the Navy for two years and I also didn’t know he got inspiration from Gandhi and did the 25 days fast. Overall, I enjoyed how you told his story and great job!
