This 50-min. performance piece, with songs performed in English and Spanish, as well as images and dramatic readings, honors the struggles, victories and contributions of Latino workers in our country’s labor history from the 19th century to the present, documenting the ways Latino working class heroes and heroines have raised standards for all workers. The performance piece was written by the late Karen Brandow, as part of the series, "History That Made Songs/Songs That Changed History."
