Let The Eagle Fly a Musical – Information from the site:

The Story of Cesar Chavez is an inspirational musical which tells the story of Cesar E. Chavez, one of the most influential civil rights leaders of our time and a crusader for non-violent change. It traces Chavez’s life from his childhood, as the son of migrant farm workers in the Great Depression, through his founding of the farm workers union and commitment to the non-violent struggle for social and economic justice. The musical highlights the five-year grape boycott which brought nationwide attention to the farm workers’ plight.
