Texas A&M University-Kingsville’s Pre-Law Society and American Democracy Project will again sponsor the Cesar E. Chavez walk at noon, Friday, March 30. T-shirts will be given free to the first 100 participants.

The walk will begin at the Nolan Ryan Baseball Field and end at the Memorial Student Union Building Courtyard. Following the walk, there will be a variety of speakers, including Alejandro Moreno, a participant in the historic farm workers’ strike in Starr County in 1966 and organizer of a recent reunion of those workers.

In conjunction with the march, 20 black and white photographs taken during Chavez’ three-day 1,000 mile march across California in August 1975 are on display through Saturday, March 31, in the Javelina Café in the Memorial Student Union Building.

The photographer, Daniel W. Hunter, was working at Ramparts magazine as the co-art director and photographer when Chavez started his 1,000-mile march across California. He joined Chavez and his group in Modesto and spent time taking photographs and talking to people in the march.

For more information, call 361-593-4154.
