History tells us Cesar Chavez transformed the U.S. labor movement by leading the first farm workers’ union. But missing from this narrative is his equally influential co-founder, Dolores Huerta, who fought tirelessly alongside Chavez for racial and labor justice. Like so many powerful women advocates, Dolores and her sweeping reforms were – and still are – sidelined and diminished. Even as she empowered a generation of immigrants to stand up for their rights, her relentless work ethic was constantly under attack from foes and friends alike. "Dolores" sets the record straight on one of the most effective and undervalued civil and labor rights leaders in modern U.S. history. USA, 2016
