Fred Blanco Portrays Cesar Chavez

Acclaimed Los Angeles-based actor and scholar Fred Blanco will present the one-man show "The Stories of Cesar Chavez" in several Colorado locations as this year's Latino Heritage Live tour.

Blanco's dramatic portrayal of Cesar Chavez, one of the most inspirational and influential civil rights leaders of our time, looks at the man and his struggle for equality. The audience joins Chavez during his first hunger strike in 1968, and follows him on a spiritual journey through his humble childhood to his days as a courageous labor leader.

Thank you to Su Teatro Cultural and Performing Arts Center for their support and contribution of props to this Latino Heritage Live program.

Please join us for these free events, always followed by conversation with the presenter.
