Faculty Lauren Araiza speaks at historic celebration

Faculty

The 1965 grape-workers strike may not be a well-known event outside the farming industry, but it resulted in a living wage for farmworkers and is considered a milestone in labor history.

Lauren Araiza, associate professor of history and author of “To March for Others: The Black Freedom Struggle and the United Farm Workers,” will discuss her book at an event celebrating the landmark in farmworker history.

Her book examines the complexities of multiracial coalition building in American social movements by examining the relationships between the major organizations of the black freedom struggle and the UFW, a union of primarily Mexican American farm workers.
