Celbrating Women of Labor: Dolores
Join us on Monday, September 4th (Labor Day) at 7pm at the Doris Duke Theatre at the Honolulu Museum of Art as we screen Dolores, a film about about one of the great labor leaders of our time.
About the film:
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.
