Re: “Making History

I had always been torn about Chavez, there was enough waves to rock the Republic's shaky boat back then. tenuf, I thought. I became. an elementary teacher in Yuma, my classes mostostly Hispanic. On a lark, I mentioned Chavez: none of them knew who he was! None. He was born there, died here. I was astounded. Out came the text books. There are SCHOOLS on the border named after him, and most of the kids thought he was a BOXER. My hometown? South Philly, and I still know people who can't eat table grapes. So, I started. My opinion changed about him quickly - I don't care if the movie is an A+ or a D -. ANY information about Mr. Chavez is good information to the community. And that from an old White guy.
