The Search For A Civic Voice: California Latino Politics
Book reading by author Kenneth Burt
Ken Burt, the political director of the California Federation of Teachers, has provided an overview of the growing power of the Latino community in California, which is now 35% of California's population and probably the majority of the labor force, especially in agriculture, construction, building services and the hospitality industry (hotels and restaurants). As the largest growing ethnic community in California the history of its fight for justice and equality has been tied to social and community movements according to Kenneth Burt. http://www.kennethburt.com/index.html
