Miriam Pawel, Luis Valdez and Pablo Cruz
Moderated by Laura Pulido

Biographer Miriam Pawel, playwright/director Luis Valdez (Teatro Campesino) and film producer Pablo Cruz (Canana’s Chavez) lend their perspective on the crusades of an unlikely American hero who ignited one of the great social movements of our time.
