Activist, Comedian Cheech Marin to Help Kick Off César E. Chávez Celebration

Widely known as one half of the iconic comedy duo Cheech and Chong, Cheech Marin is lending his talent, knowledge and humor to help kick off the University of California San Diego 2021 César E. Chávez Celebration on April 8. His talk is part of a monthlong series of free virtual events that honor the life and achievements of Mexican American labor leader and civil rights activist César E. Chávez. This year also marks the 20th anniversary of the university coming together in honor of the legacy and contributions of Chávez and the Chicanx-Latinx community. All events are open to the campus community and the public.

April’s lineup of events will center on the theme of “50 Years of Chicano Movement: Honoring the Legacy & Struggle.” Richard “Cheech” Marin—a comedian, activist and actor—will deliver the keynote address as part of the 20th Annual César E. Chávez Celebration Kickoff and Scholarship Awards on April 8. The keynote will include a discussion of his career in comedy and film, his community activism as well his art collection. A passionate Chicanx art supporter and collector, Marin has developed the finest private collection of Chicanx art in the nation through the Cheech Marin Center for Chicano Art, Culture and Industry.

Alongside the virtual kickoff and other celebratory events, the university has made available free online resources to learn more about Chávez, the Chicano Movement, San Diego’s Chicano Park and more.

“The life and legacy of César E. Chávez is an inspiration to all collaborators and advocates for equity and social justice,” said Chancellor Pradeep K. Khosla. “One of my favorite Chávez quotes embodies our Triton spirit of collaboration and social mobility. He said, ‘We cannot seek achievement for ourselves and forget about progress and prosperity for our community…Our ambitions must be broad enough to include the aspirations and needs of others, for their sakes and for our own.’ Throughout this month, we celebrate the important movement Chávez and others began and reenergize ourselves to continue progress for a more just, equitable tomorrow.”

An advocate for equality and civil rights, Chávez dedicated his life to righting the injustices that plagued migrant farmworkers across the nation. In 1962, he co-founded the National Farm Workers Association (NFWA). NFWA joined forces with the Agricultural Workers Organizing Committee (AWOC) in 1966, merging to become the United Farm Workers Organizing Committee and later renamed the United Farm Workers of America (UFW). UFW continues to fight for improved social and economic conditions for farmworkers around the country.

He is also a principal figure in the Chicano Movement. In the 1960s, the Chicano Movement—or El Movimiento—arose as the largest and most widespread civil rights and empowerment movement by people of Mexican descent in the U.S. During this time in 1965, Chávez played a major role in the Delano Grape Strike, a momentous five-year event that culminated in higher pay, better benefits and more protection for farmworkers.

Update: Riverside Wants to Waste Millions of Dollars on Cheech Marin Museum

Update:  The City Council agreed to this ridiculous project with an alleged wife beater's name on it.  Wasteful government.

Riverside City, California wants to remodel a library to display Cheech Marin's chicano artwork.  This is the same collection that toured the nation a few years back (sponsored by Target).


The plan is set to go to the full City Council on Tuesday, Jan. 19 for approval — just days before an offer to renovate the library for $13.3 million expires. The Cheech Marin Center for Chicano Art and Culture, as it will be called, is expected to open in late 2021.

It will cost $10.7 million to build and $1 million per year to operate.

Taxpayers should be pissed.  Such a waste of money.

The council must be a bunch of star f*ckers.  Do they even know the real Richard Marin?  Have they read the TMZ article about the 'alleged' incidents?

Is this a tax write-off for Cheech so he can continue buying art?

New Documentary Explores Pat Morita's Life and Career

Fifteen years after his death at the age of 73, Pat Morita — star of The Karate Kid and honorary star of the Netflix hit Cobra Kai — remains a beloved Hollywood legend. But long before Morita created one of the most indelible characters in film history with his portrayal of Mr. Miyagi, the Japanese-American comedian and actor spent decades breaking barriers on the big and small screens. 


In the new documentary More Than Miyagi: The Pat Morita Story, director Kevin Derek explores the actor's extraordinary life and varied career, from his childhood battle with spinal tuberculosis to his early days as a stand-up comedian to his later struggles with drug and alcohol addiction. The film features archival interviews with Morita as well as new conversations with his many costars, including The Karate Kid's Ralph Macchio and William Zabka, Happy Days' Marion Ross and Henry Winkler, and fellow comics Larry Miller and Tommy Chong.

More Than Miyagi premieres on iTunes, Amazon Prime Video, and other streaming platforms Feb. 5.
