Ruth Borker Film Series on Intersectionality and Activism
Films about activists whose unique identities empower them to take bold action to change the world!
Dolores centers on Dolores Huerta's committed work to organize California farm workers as the co-founder of the UFW (United Farm Workers), in alliance with the Chicano Movement, the Civil Rights Movement, Gay liberation and US-based LGBTQ social movements, and the late 20th century Women's rights movement. Including recent and historical interviews with Huerta and her family members, the documentary includes historic film footage from the farm worker strikes and marches in Delano, California and New York City, the activism of the Delano grape strike that spread throughout the country, Sen. Robert Kennedy's meetings with the organizers during his Presidential campaign, as well as interviews with UFW co-founder Cesar Chavez, theatre artist Luis Valdez, Angela Davis, Gloria Steinem, Hillary Clinton, and Barack Obama.
