In partnership with Multi-Ethnic Student Affairs (MESA), University Housing, and the U-M Latina/o Studies Program, the Trotter Distinguished Leadership Series presents the “Hailing Cesar” film screening and discussion with Eduardo Chavez, grandson of civil rights activist César Chávez.

About the film: Hailing Cesar is a film about Eduardo Chavez’s journey to understand the legacy and struggle of his grandfather, the civil rights activist César Chávez.

Eduardo was only three years old when César passed away. Growing up comfortably in the San Francisco Bay Area, where his father Fernando was a lawyer, Eduardo had difficulty connecting with his grandfather’s life.
After a turning point in his life, Eduardo began to explore the places, learn about the people, and carry out the activities that were so important to César. Eduardo’s journey included working in the fields, picking grapes, as both his grandfather and father once did.

Eduardo’s goal is to share César's message with a new generation. This film is Eduardo’s first step in honoring his legacy.

Eduardo Chavez: Director, Actor, Activist
As the grandson of both the legendary civil rights activist César Chávez and the Cuban revolutionary Max Lesnik, Eduardo Chavez is the scion of two revolutionary families. This background has informed the majority of his work so far.

Eduardo is making his directorial debut with the feature documentary, "Hailing Cesar," released in April 2018. He is the co-founder of Latindia Studios and a member of the Speakers’ Board for the Chávez Institute for Law and Social Justice.

Eduardo attended Loyola Marymount University on a golf scholarship and graduated with a B.A. in communications. After college, he played professional golf and studied acting in Miami and Los Angeles.

This event is open to the public and guests are welcome.

Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King (MLK), Jr., is the first and only private citizen whose birthday is officially commemorated by the U.S. federal government. During his short life - just 39 years old when he was assassinated in 1968 - he led a nonviolent social and political movement against racism. He has become a symbol of the historical and current-day struggle for civil rights and equality in the U.S.

We invite both international and domestic students, scholars, and community members to learn more about Dr. King’s life, converse with American students and staff about Dr. King’s impact on their lives, and have an open dialogue about diversity and inclusion within and outside of the U.S. The conversation will be facilitated by staff from LS&A Newnan Academic Advising Center and the International Center.

Readers & Best was created in the Summer of 2014 as a joint collaboration between the Ginsberg Center’s Literacy Initiatives and the Athletic Department’s Let’s Go Do program. The goal was to provide opportunities for students across campus to come together to support reading in local schools through one-time visits. We provide the monthly curriculum for each visit, which includes a book and activity specific to the grade level of the classroom. The general Readers & Best visit requires a 2.5 hour time block from student volunteers. This includes the brief orientation, travel and the time at the school. Typically, we offer 10 slots for schools participating in the Readers and Best curriculum. The visit is led by a site leader and up to 6 additional students (since we can fit 7 people in a van). Volunteers are at the school for an hour and a half, so each volunteer reads to 2 classrooms for 30 minutes each. The Ginsberg Center provides transportation to and from the schools.
