The celebration promoted in this poster was intended to raise UFW consciousness among the mostly African American orange pickers and grove workers in central Florida, many of whom didn't feel particular solidarity with the mostly Latino, California-based union. That was because the Minute Maid company had signed a UFW contract without a major struggle because its parent company, Coca Cola, wanted to avoid an international boycott. Note that one of the events at this picnic is a showing of Fighting for Our Lives, the 1974 documentary about the bloody 1973 grape strike in California
