Dolores: Rebel. Activist. Feminist. Mother

October 3, 2018

3:00 PM - 5:00 PM



Presented by the UIC Latino Cultural Center

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 at 88 she continues the fight to this day. 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.

Approx. 90 min.

Screening followed by discussion facilitated by Elena R. Gutiérrez, Associate Professor, Gender & Women’s Studies (GWS), and Latin American and Latino Studies (LALS) Program.
