Following the Steps of Cesar Chavez
Stories about the steps of Cesar Chavez seep through conversations all over rural California.
“Cesar Chavez went to church here. He celebrated here and brought the people here.” A local community resident lets this slip off his tongue as we pass by a small Church off First Street in Coachella.
Many living residents have memories with Cesar Chavez in Coachella, and there is a growing community effort to not forget. Follow these youth journalists in Coachella for details.
We stopped back by the Church later in the evening. The walls are in the pictures below. The art mural of La Madre is one of my favorites in Cali.
In the streets, the buildings and walls are the canvas and frames. There is no rope to keep us out. In the streets, you dive into the frames, swim with the art, walk on the walls, disregarding gravity and social law; the lines blur till you and your camera become a part of it.
Here’s a taste of walking through the alleys off 24th street in the Mission of San Francisco.
Note: I did not capture the names of the artists or history of the art I’ve taken photos of and posted. They were taken in May 2013 in the alleys and streets of the Mission District in San Francisco. If you have specifics, please let me know.
The hope is to learn the history, the territory, the artists in a more intentional way as I share out my walks.
Visit Precita Eyes Muralists in SF if you ever want a legit walking history tour of the murals.
