In Partnership with Rhodes College Departments of Anthropology & Sociology, Gender & Sexuality Studies, Latin American Studies, and Modern Languages, The National Civil Rights Museum invites you to an exclusive documentary screening and conversation with one of the most defiant Hispanic gender, civil, and labor rights activists of the 20th century - Dolores C. Huerta.

See her story & meet Dolores Huerta in person!

The film tells how Dolores Huerta fought tirelessly alongside César Chavez for racial and labor justice to become one of the most influential labor leaders despite the obstacles of male chauvinism. As an advocate for farm workers' rights, Huerta has been arrested 22 times for participating in non-violent civil disobedience activities and strikes. She remains active in progressive causes through the most radical social and cultural movements of the past 50 years, from brown power and feminism to LGBTQI rights and environmental justice. In person, Huerta will answer questions about her life and the film after the screening.
