"United Farm Workers grape strike"

July 16, 1973


Silent footage of the United Farm Workers grape strike. Shots include people standing in the road by the fields with UFW flags and Cesar Chavez having conversations with people. There are also shots of the fields, grapes on the vine, and workers packing the grapes into boxes.

Note:  The KTLA newsfilm collection at UCLA consists of cut and unedited stories, outtakes and fill footage, originally shot on 16mm reversal film stock with magnetic soundtrack. Some footage, particularly material not used for broadcast, may be without sound.
