Celebrating Cesar Chavez's Birthday
I've had the opportunity to work full-time at two universities that take unique holidays. One of the few good things about my time at USM was that we got to take Mardis Gras off. Not being Catholic or even much of a reveler (I'm not much for drunken crowds. Plus, there's that story my dad tells me about visiting Nawlins one year and meeting a nice-looking woman with whom he wanted to have relations, but it turns out dude looked like a lady). Now I'm enjoying UTEP, and here we get Cezar Chavez's birthday off as a holiday. I admit to not knowing much about this figure, but if I want to learn more, there are some graphic novels to help. Here's a review of one. Here's another.
