This is a speech at UC Berkeley’s Sproul Plaza rally recorded live May 1968, from the H.K. Yuen archive I worked with for two years. “Why are the workers and why are the poor in the rural areas so committed to Kennedy? [When] we were taking a beating… we called on people in Washington…asking them to come to Delano. Senator Kennedy was one of those that came. And he held a meeting of the Subcommittee on Migratory Labor… a very effective thing.”
The archive is a fantastic, underdeveloped resource currently laying dormant at the Ethnic Studies Library. [LMC]
