Event description

Description

Join Dolores Huerta in person for a screening of the multi-award winning film, Dolores. Produced by Carlos Santana and premiered at Sundance Film Festival, Dolores features an intersectional "cast" of civil rights leaders from both then and now--including Angela Davis, Gloria Steinem, Eliseo Medina, Luis Valdez, and the next generation of leaders on the rise. Dolores Huerta is among the most important, yet least known, activists in American history. An equal partner in co-founding the first farm workers unions with Cesar Chavez, her enormous contributions have gone largely unrecognized. Dolores tirelessly led the fight for racial and labor justice alongside Chavez, becoming one of the most defiant feminists of the twentieth century—and she continues the fight to this day, at 87. With intimate and unprecedented access to this intensely private mother to eleven, the film reveals the raw, personal stakes involved in committing one’s life to social change. Directed by Peter Bratt.
