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, she has made enormous contributions, and they have gone largely unrecognized. Dolores led the fight for racial and labor justice alongside Chavez, becoming one of the most defiant feminists of the 20th 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.
