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. Eduardo’s political and activist background influenced his feature documentary, Hailing Cesar, released in April 2018.
Since its debut, Eduardo has screened Hailing Cesar and spoken at 50+ universities in 3 different countries. In addition to being a director, speaker, and activist, Eduardo is the co-founder of Latindia Studios and a member of the Speakers’ Board for the Chavez Institute for Law and Social Justice. Eduardo is also the host of the podcast We Are Latinx. Launched this year, he interviews Latinx individuals about their work and how their culture shapes it. It is now streaming on Spotify and Apple Podcasts.
Eduardo will discuss his work with us as part of his second trip to the Wood River Valley. All are welcome to join. No registration required. This program will be in-person only.
Presented in partnership with the Hispanic Latin America Consortium and The Crisis Hotline.
