Kirby Hall of Civil Rights 104
Frank Bardacke

Political activist Frank Bardacke took part in the civil rights movement in the South and in the student and anti-war movements in Berkeley in the 1960's. In 1967 he was indicted as one of the Oakland 7 for his anti-war activities. He moved to California's Central Coast in 1970 where he worked for six seasons in the Salinas Valley fields and taught at Watsonville Adult School for twenty-five years. Bardacke is featured in the documentary, “Berkeley in the Sixties,” available for streaming on the Lafayette web-site, and is the author of Trampling Out the Vintage: Cesar Chavez and the Two Souls of the United Farm Workers (Verso, 2012), among other books.

Cesar Chavez (1927-1993) was a legendary American labor leader and civil rights activist who in 1962 co-founded the United Farm Workers Union in California’s Central Valley.

This event is a keynote lecture for the Social Justice Events Series.
