ISU's chapter of the Illinois Latino Council on Higher Education presents the screening of the film DOLORES. As part of the 26th Professional and Student Development Conference, this film will be shown and then followed by a Q&A session with ISU sponsors.
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. NR / 95 min.
