SANTA BARBARA — The UCSB Multicultural Center Theater to present free screening of “Dolores” at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 17 as part of its Cup of Culture series.

“Dolores, a documentary, extols Dolores Huerta’s lifelong, and seemingly unlimited, fighting spirit in the service of workers’ rights”. – The NYTimes
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 film reveals the raw, personal stakes involved in committing one’s life to social change. Dr. Rebeca Mireles Rios, Professor at the Gevirtz Graduate School of Education, will lead a post-film discussion immediately following the film.  1h 35 min.
