John Lewis, Martin Luther King, and George Wallace are some that expressed their beliefs through persuasive empowering words.
Cesar Chavez was an important Hispanic person during the civil rights movement. Being a farm worker and a labor leader, he dedicated his life to improving farm workers working conditions, treatment, and celery. He was born near Yuma, Arizona, on March 31, 1927.

Cesar Chavez had a great pride towards everything he stood for, whether it was his catholic beliefs or protecting his fellow man from the oppressor. Growing up in America, Cesar Chavez witnessed discrimination from being Mexican first hand. By growing up in a family oriented catholic home, he was raised to care about the well being of others and to approach life in a nonviolent manner. Having a father who was a farmer, he witnessed the poor living conditions and wages that were given to him and knew that something had to be done. Cesar Chavez’s fight for improving working conditions for farmers helped him gather a large following of Mexican Americans. By implementing elements of Catholicism and parts of his Mexican heritage into his rallies using The Virgen de Guadalupe as a symbol for protection, and by protesting through the use of nonviolence and self-sacrifice, Cesar Chavez managed to start a revolution in America to get first class citizenship for Mexican Americans.
Mexican-American Cesar Chavez (1927-1993) is known as an American farm worker, a prominent union leader, labor organizer, and a civil rights activist. By having much experience since he was a migrant worker when he was very young, Chavez with another co-founder created The National Farm Workers Association in 1962 that later became United Farm Workers.

For example, at the beginning of his letter he states that the demonstrations of the clergymen’s claim were “unwise and untimely.” He showed that he had a plan of direct action regarding ways to solve the issues at hand. The phrasing of this statement indicated that Martin Luther King Jr. was sympathetic towards the “Negro community,” and that he believed that the “white power structure” was at fault. Direct action was argumentative and showed that King understood the suggestions that were being made. Throughout the letter, King established himself as one who is well versed in the happenings of the community. He showed that he was willing to proceed with respect and dignity, but because of the emotional appeals that he feels compelled to make for his cause, he will not remain
“Violence as a way of achieving racial justice is both impractical and immoral. I am not unmindful of the fact that violence often brings about momentary results.

Cesar Chavez, published an article on the tenth anniversary of the assassination of Martin Luther King. Jr. In his argument, he emphasizes about advocating for nonviolent resistance and cite the ideals of Dr. King. Implementing an admirable tone, he repeats about how nonviolence is more powerful than violence since nonviolence will only be able to achieve those of the civil rights activist's goals.
