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 daay, at 88.
Crossing borders: the many faces of the struggle for a better life in the Iberian American World (film series) is co-organized by the Spanish, Portuguese, and American Studies programs at HKU, with the support of the Department of Comparative Literature and the CSGC. Co-sponsored by the US, Mexican and Spanish Consulates General in Hong Kong.
