Afterwords: Dolores

Join us for an Afterwords following Thursday night's 6pm screening with representatives from the Missouri Young Farmers' Coalition

Afterwords is Ragtag’s discussion series where we invite special guests to help us better understand a new movie.

Dolores Huerta is among the most important, yet least known, activists in American history. An equal partner in co-founding the first farm workers unions with Cesar Chavez, her enormous contributions have gone largely unrecognized. Dolores tirelessly led the fight for racial and labor justice alongside Chavez, becoming one of the most defiant feminists of the twentieth century — and she continues the fight to this day, at 87. With intimate and unprecedented access to this intensely private mother to eleven, the documentary reveals the raw, personal stakes involved in committing one's life to social change.

"Dolores is a fascinating corrective to 50-plus years of American history. It's educational, to be sure, but also exhilarating, inspiring and deeply emotional." (Lora Grady, Washington Post)
