Three items related to Chicano support for Hubert Humphrey's presidential campaign

n.p.: Mexican-American Political Association / Farm Workers Political Education Committee, [1968]. Three items in support of Hubert Humphrey’s 1968 Presidential campaign, which he ran unsuccessfully against Richard Nixon. Humphrey publicly support Cesar Chavez’s national boycott and even met with him privately when campaigning in California. His attempt to extend the National Labor Relations Act to farm workers endeared him to many Chicano activists and United Farm Worker members and these three items reflect that support. Included are:

A 20” x 14” poster printed in green and red and featuring the slogan, “HHH, Si! Si! Si!” and with the UFW emblem.

An 8 ½” x 11” offset printed flyer for a “Brown’s [sic] and Blacks” Hubert Humphrey rally and encouraging participants to “groove right on and dig Julian Bond & Cesar Chavez who will accompany HHH.” The rally was held at HHH Headquarters in East San Jose.

A two-sided 8 ½” x 11” offset printed flyer featuring a cartoon of a La Raza eagle chasing Nixon and Reagan with a group of Humphrey supporters following and captioned, “The Grape Eater Is On the Run.” The verso includes a chant or song in Spanish and a blurb in English accusing Nixon of being a foe of organized labor.
