Dolores (Peter Bratt, 2017, 96min, USA)
Among the most important yet least known activists in U.S. history, Dolores Huerta was an equal partner in co-founding the first farm workers unions with Cesar Chavez, but her enormous contributions have gone largely unrecognized. She started as a young activist at Stockton High School, was the mother of eleven children, and is now deservedly gaining credit for her many contributions in empowering working people.
