Chávez celebration set for Saturday

From page A6 | April 06, 2012 |

Inclement weather forced the postponement of the 12th annual Davis César Chávez celebration, but the party will go on Saturday at 11:30 a.m. in Central Park during the Farmers Market.

The free event, to take place on the Rotary Stage near the children’s carousel, is sponsored by the Davis Human Relations Commission. Community members, especially children and families, are invited to attend.

The keynote speaker will be Miroslava Chávez-Garcia, chairwoman and associate professor in the Chicana/o studies department at UC Davis. Chávez-Garcia is the daughter of Mexican working-class parents and was raised in Holtville and San Jose before receiving her Ph.D. from UCLA.

Her parents hoped to carve out a better existence for themselves and loved ones left behind in Aguacalientes, Mexico. Her family’s experience and that of other Mexicans in the United States have inspired her to research, write and interpret their histories.

Chávez-Garcia is the author of “Negotiating Conquest: Gender and Power in California, 1770s to 1880s,” as well as “States of Delinquency: Race and Science in the Making of California’s Juvenile Justice System.” She will speak about Chávez’s legacy and his relevance to Latinos in the United States today.

The Chávez event also will feature live music, singing and dancing. TRIO, an acoustic guitar group, will join the celebration once again this year with a selection of folk music. Attendees will be serenaded for the third year by students in the César Chávez Elementary School Choir, under the direction of Ximena Jackson, which will perform several songs in English and Spanish.

Finally, UCD’s Danzantes del Alma will present their colorful and expressive folklorico dancing.

March 31 is Chávez’s birthday. Chávez spoke at rallies in Davis’ Central Park during the tomato growers’ strikes in the 1970s. One such rally in Davis on Aug. 11, 1974, was reported to have drawn more than 2,000 attendees.
