Full Answer

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.
