Dolores Huerta: Revolution in the Fields

Saturday, May 27, 2023

"Dolores Huerta: Revolution in the Fields / Revolución en los Campos" shares the compelling story of legendary activist and leader Dolores Huerta (b.1930) and the farm workers movement of the 1960s and '70s. It is a quintessentially American tale of struggle and sacrifice, of courage and victory.

The exhibition explores Huerta’s public life as an activist and co-founder of the United Farm Workers Union (UFW) and what led her to become a Latina civil rights icon. In her life as a communicator, organizer, lobbyist, contract negotiator, teacher and mother, her unparalleled leadership skills helped dramatically improve the lives of farm workers.
