Today is Cesar Chavez's birthday. Don't know what he did? Here to break it down for us is Ethriam Brammer, Associate Director at Wayne State University Latino Studies department and Chicano Scholar and Reuther Library Historian, Mike Smith. The two discuss the life and work of Cesar Chavez as well as the biopic released this year. This film tells the story of the civil rights leader and labor organizer. Chavez fought for social justice for farm workers. This is the story of a man who some say changed the world.

The Walter Reuther Library houses the Cesar Chavez national archives.
