Photographer's Note

Today, Monday January 15th, 2007, is celebrated in the USA the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, honoring the well known civil rights activist (the youngest man to be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize).
Almost of the same age is the less known César E. Chávez. Both are depicted in these murals on the Calvary Baptist Church, in Barrio Logan, San Diego, California.
César Estrada Chávez (March 31, 1927 – April 23, 1993) was an American farm worker, labor leader, and civil rights activist who co-founded the National Farm Workers Association, which later became the United Farm Workers. His work led to numerous improvements for migrant workers. He is hailed as one of the greatest Mexican American civil rights leaders. His birthday on March 31 has subsequently become a holiday in a handful of U.S. states, and a number of parks, cultural centers, libraries, schools, and streets have been named in his honor in several cities across the United States.

These murals are very near the famous Chicano Park murals, also in San Diego's Barrio Logan.
See also my photo with another mural of M.L. King inside Martin Luther King Elementary School, also in San Diego.
