In the copious volumes written about Cesar Chavez, there’s little mention of Dolores Huerta, although she was his equal partner and co-founder of the United Farm Workers union. Dolores sheds light on this enigmatic, intensely private woman who is among the most important activists in American history. While tracing her trajectory through the most radical social and cultural movements of the past 50 years, Dolores provides an unflinching look at the barriers faced by women and people of color within the very communities they’re fighting for. Featuring interviews with Angela Davis, Gloria Steinem, Hillary Clinton and Luis Valdez, the film reveals her ever-expanding wave of influence through decades of activism, leading many to ask why her contributions have been erased from American history.
