Dolores (Independent Lens on PBS):In English 95 minutes)
(Note that our film is being shown on the 2nd rather than the 3rd Sunday of the month.)
Meet the indomitable Dolores Huerta, who tirelessly led the fight for racial and labor justice alongside Cesar Chavez, becoming one of the most defiant - and unheralded - feminist activists of the 20th century.
Dec 1, 2017 - Dolores (review)– “powerful portrait of Mexican-American activist. This documentary nails its case for legendary status to be instantly conferred on the Mexican-American labour activist and feminist Dolores Huerta– the woman who invented the slogan ‘Yes We Can’, or, as she coined it, ‘Sí Se Puede’.” - review in The Guardian.
We are indeed lucky to have as our presenter for this film Joanne Carder, AV member extraordinaire, who worked for and with Ms Huerta in Salinas in the early 70s. Known as “la esposa del abogado” (“wife of the lawyer”), Ms. Carder worked to help get needed services for the laboring farm workers there.
