I was 12 years old when the grape strike began in l965. It lasted 5 years and when I became aware in high school of the injustices towards the farm workers I began my boycott of not eating grapes. Cesar Chavez has been my hero ever since and as a reminder of the continued abuse that currently exists I still do not eat table grapes. When I am offered grapes and refuse them it gives me the opportunity to tell others the story of Cesar Chavez.
I must admit that I do drink wine.
