Sabiduría: Marty Ramirez, A Nebraskan’s Story

Marty Ramirez was born in Scottsbluff, Nebraska in 1945 to a family of migrant workers.  Marty worked the fields with his ten siblings until college.  To his own surprise, he scored a baseball scholarship to Chadron State College. He was the only one of his siblings to go to college.  After a tour in Vietnam, he returned to Scottsbluff and began organizing around Chicano rights. For this week’s sabiduría, or words of wisdom, Marty helps us understand the progress of the past with what’s happening in Nebraska today.
