Women Pioneer Series: DOLORES

Viewing: January 30, 2018

Watch Trailer Director: Peter Bratt
Cast: Hillary Clinton, Angela Davis, Dolores Huerta

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.

Introduction by Dr. Alicia Chavira-Prado, Special Assistant to the Vice Provost for Diversity and Inclusion.

Free admission is provided by Arts for OHIO.

This event is also sponsored by the Kennedy Lecture Series as part of the Athena Cinema’s Women Pioneer Series.

'Dolores' is a fascinating corrective to 50-plus years of American history. It's educational, to be sure, but also exhilarating, inspiring and deeply emotional.
