Mon. March 25, 2019, 06:30 PM - Special Collections Libraries 271
One of the most important, yet least known activists of our time, Dolores Huerta was an equal partner in founding the first farm workers union with César Chávez. Tirelessly leading the fight for racial and labor justice, Huerta evolved into one of the most defiant feminists of the 20th century — and she continues the fight to this day, in her late 80s. With unprecedented access the film chronicles Huerta’s life from her childhood to her continued activist work.
