Film Platform Series presents "Dolores : rebel, activist, feminist, mother"

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, becoming one of the most defiant feminists of the twentieth century--and she continues to fight to this day, at 89. Prof. Karma Chavez, Chair of the Department of Mexican American and Latina/o Studies, will give a short introduction about Dolores Huerta and community organizing. 

Candy, popcorn, and pickles will be served!

 

This screening is co-sponsored by the Libraries and Latino Studies at The Univeristy of Texas at Austin.
