Henry Santiestevan. The pioneering Latino journalist and labor organizer headed the Viva Kennedy and Viva Humphrey campaigns in 1968. That same year he became the founding director of the National Council of La Raza. He is one of the many nearly-forgotten California Latino leaders featured in the Search for a Civic Voice.
