Dolores

Jun 15, 2018

Dolores Huerta co-founded the first farm workers union alongside Cesar Chavez. But she's not as well-known, and director Peter Bratt believes it’s because she was a strong defiant woman. (Rebroadcast)

Few people know the name Dolores Huerta, but she’s among the most important activists in American history. Huerta was an equal partner with Cesar Chavez in co-founding the first farm workers unions. Together they fought for racial and labor justice, a struggle she continues to this day, at age 88. Director Peter Bratt joins us to discuss his documentary film about Huerta’s lifelong battle for civil rights. It’s also about the personal sacrifices and unconventional choices of a complicated woman. (Rebroadcast)
