Q:

Who is a famous, deceased Hispanic person?

A:

Cesar Chavez was a famous Hispanic man who established the National Farm Workers Association in 1962. The union, later referred to as National Farm Workers, was organized to publicize the condition of unskilled farm laborers.

Chavez was born in 1923. He grew up in a family of migrant workers, and he understood the poor treatment, low pay and miserable conditions under which they toiled. As reported in Biography, Chavez believed strongly in education's power, although he only achieved an eighth grade education. However, his insatiable love of reading led him to study the techniques of pacifists, such as Gandhi. He died peacefully in 1993.

Writing the notes is often an emotional task, but people do not expect anything elaborate at this time. Speaking simply from the heart is enough.
