Photos of Robert Kennedy and Cesar Chavez

Professor Frank Barajas at California State University Channel Islands has a nice blog that focuses, in large measure, on Latino history in Ventura County. Two of my favorite posts on his site feature historic photos from Oxnard. One is of Cesar Chavez and other Community Service Organization activists encouraging voters to go to the polls in 1958. The other is from a decade later. Robert F. Kennedy is captured praying in a little church in the Colonia a few days before his assassination in 1968.
