Cesar Chavez Birthday Celebration held at Marcus Performing Arts Center
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Hundreds filled the Marcus Performing Arts Center on Sunday, March 7 to celebrate the life and legacy of Cesar Chavez.
The annual free event featured performances by students and local arts groups.
Chavez was a Latino human rights and labor activist. He was also an unselfish advocate of social injustice and respect for human dignity.
CBS 58 and our sister station, Telemundo Wisconsin, are proud sponsors of the Cesar Chavez Birthday Celebration.
El Jarabe Tapatío is one of my favorite regional dances from the beautiful state of #Jalisco in #Mexico. It makes me so proud to see how these young kids represent our #Latino culture here in #Milwaukee even far away from where our parents came from. #VIVAMEXICOpic.twitter.com/51Ua5nMqWS— Pari Cruz (@paricruz) March 8, 2020
