Film Screening: ‘Dolores: Rebel.Activist.Feminist.Mother.’
September 25, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Film screening and facilitated discussion with Dr. Indi Braden, professor of agriculture, to follow.
Dolores Huerta was an equal partner in co-founding the first farm workers unions with Cesar Chavez, yet is one of the least known activists in American history. Huerta tirelessly led the fight for racial and labor justice alongside Chavez, becoming one of the most defiant feminists of the twentieth century. She continues the fight to this day at 87 years old. The provocative and energizing documentary sets the record straight on one of the most effective and undervalued civil and labor rights leaders in modern U.S. history.
