Title

"Si Se Puede Trio"

Subject

United Farm Workers, Cesar Chavez, Emiliano Zapata, Martin Luther King Jr.

Description

This poster juxtaposes three heroic figures that embody the UFW cause: Cesar E. Chavez, co-founder of the UFW; Emiliano Zapata, agrarian leader of the Mexican Revolution; and, Martin Luther King Jr., nonviolent leader of the Civil Rights Movement. Zapata represents the Mexican struggle for farmworker rights, while MLK Jr. represents Chavez's goal of nonviolence for the UFW cause. The quote on the poster states: "When we are really honest with ourselves we must admit that our lives are all that really belong to us. It is my deepest belief that by only giving our lives, do we find life."
--Cesar E. Chavez, 1927-1992
