NLC Kicks Off Hispanic Heritage Month
A free showing of the film “Cesar Chavez” commemorated Hispanic Heritage Month at Northeast Lakeview College. The film titled “Cesar Chavez – History is Made Once Step at a Time” shows Chavez multilayered, torn between family and the struggle for a living wage and dignity for exploited farm workers. Using archival footage fused with dramatic sequences, the story is briskly told. NLC is hosting several other events throughout the month to celebrate Hispanic Heritage.
