Harbor Currents: FAMILY/COMMUNITY March 27, 2013

March 28
Cesar Chávez, The Man
El Camino College Compton Center will celebrate civil rights leader Cesar Chávez with a series of activities, from 11:00 a.m. to 12:25 p.m. March 28, in the Student Lounge.
The day’s festivities will include a produce exhibit with samples; music by “Mariachi Cachanilla de Mexicali” directed by Arturo Cortez; and a selection of Mexican cuisine for purchase. The celebratory event is free and open to the public.
The highlight of the Cesar Chávez Day Observance will be a performance entitled “Cesar Chávez, The Man” by Adolph Lopez.
Chávez founded and led the first successful farm workers’ union in the United States. When he passed away on April 23, 1993, he was president of the United Farm Workers of America. Against all odds, 1960s grape pickers made history when they won the right to bargain after beginning their fight thinking their chance at success was close to zero. Generations that followed have one man to thank for decades of tireless leadership and nonviolent tactics used in the fight for social justice, especially for migrant farm workers.
In 1994, Chávez’s family and the officers of the UFW created the Cesar E. Chávez Foundation (www.chavezfoundation.org) to inspire current and future generations by promoting the ideals of Chavez’s life, work and vision.

QSpeak Celebrates Women’s History Month
In celebration of Women’s History Month, we have invited Helen Factor to share her experience with the Chicago Women’s Graphics Collective, from 3 to 6 p.m. April 7, at The Center Long Beach.
The Women’s Graphics Collective wanted their feminist art to be a collective process in order to set it apart from the male-dominated Western art culture. Each poster was a joint creation by the members and most of the posters were not signed. Per the collective’s catalog, “We’re all in charge here.”
Joining Helen Factor will be Marie Cartier, scholar, visual performance artist, queer activist, poet and theologian. Cartier will be conducting a one-on-one interview with Helen regarding her experience joining the collective, her experience in the collective and her art. Cartier teaches at UC Irvine in Film and Media Studies, and California State University Northridge in Gender and Women’s Studies. Her book, Baby You Are My Religion: Women, Gay Bars and Theology before Stonewall, which includes information and images from the Women’s Graphics Collective, will be published by Acumen Press, 2013.
The event is free.
