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.
Presented in partnership with the Park City Museum as part of their The Way We Worked exhibit and the Reel Community Series, with additional support from Summit County RAP Tax. Admission is free.
Park City Museum will have the Smithsonian exhibit The Way We Worked on display from November 11, 2017 to January 11, 2018. The Way We Worked has been made possible in Utah by Utah Humanities. The exhibition, created by the National Archives, is part of Museum on Main Street, a collaboration between the Smithsonian Institution and State Humanities Councils nationwide. Support for Museum on Main Street has been provided by the United States Congress.
"Dolores" is a fascinating corrective to 50-plus years of American history. … exhilarating, inspiring and deeply emotional. -Washington Post
