||Join us for a screening of the new documentary, Dolores, followed by a speak-out for members of the Stanford community. This event is in conjunction with the 13th Annual Anne and Loren Kieve Lecture featuring Dolores Huerta, being held the following day by the Center for Comparative Studies in Race and Ethnicity.
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.
