United Farm Workers leader Cesar Chavez responds to reports that the Ku Klux Klan is trying to help lettuce growers involved in a strike with his farm workers’ union at a press conference on February 8, 1979 in Los Angeles. He threatened a nationwide boycott if violence in the strike field increased. Chavez said he was “very concerned” about an offer by Tom Metzger, grand Dragon of the KKK in California, to recruit lettuce workers. (UPI Photo/Bob Flora/Files)
