Civil rights and union leader Cesar Chavez left a legacy of peaceful protest that carries an important message for people today. This film tells the story of artists and musicians who were inspired by the farmworkers’ perseverance for change and dedicated their creative artistry to support the cause. Through a blend of music, art, and rich historical images, “A Song for Cesar” brings a timely reminder of art’s role in progressive change.

Artists featured in the film include Carlos Santana, Maya Angelou and Cheech Marin, as well as movement leader Dolores Huerta, among many others.

The evening with WKAR includes screening of the 85-minute film, followed by a Q&A session with a panel moderated by Dr. Rubén Martinez of the Julian Samora Research Institute at MSU.
