March to Sacramento: A Farmworker Movement Pageant

“PEREGRINACION” – “PENITENCIA” – “REVOLUCION” were the themes of the March to Sacramento. The banner of the Virgin of Quadalupe, the flags of the United States and Mexico, the large wood cross adorned with rosary beads and huelga buttons, and the blazing red huelga flags with the aztec eagle all made perfect sense to the Delano Strikers. The march was conceived and executed as a public farmworker movement pageant.
