The greatest political organizer you’ve never heard of is a Mexican-American divorcée with eleven children, a close friend of Bobby Kennedy and Gloria Steinem, and a co-founder of the National Farmworkers Association with César Chavéz. Mistakenly called “César Chavéz’s girlfriend” instead of “co-founder” or “colleague,” Dolores Huerta has been all but erased from the history books and diminished in her role as a top leader of Latino rights movements. Produced by Carlos Santana, Dolores crafts a stirring and frustrating portrait of an American hero that has not been given proper recognition. -LA
