A New Film Sheds Light On Dolores Huerta’s Significant Untold Contribution From Creating ‘Si Se Puede’ Message to Organizing

One of the nation’s most important of activists, a feminist, a mother to eleven (ay Dios mio what a super woman) and co-founder of the first farm workers union along with Cesar Chavez, the undeniable Dolores Huerta is still going strong at 87, as the focus of a new engaging documentary film appropriated titled ‘Dolores’.

The multiple film festival award-winning documentary is said to share her trials and tribulations as a committed social activist though the decades. Who is behind ‘Dolores’ ? Why another legend, Carlos Santana as Executive Producer and Director, Peter Bratt (La Mission) – enough said, ‘Dolores’ looks like the kind of feminist film we look forward to watching. Refreshing as it it, the film also looks at Dolore’s love for jazz and her dreams to have become a dancer.

Thanks to feminist ‘woke’ men like Carlos Santana and Peter Bratt for realizing that Dolores Huerta’s story needed to be told, they compelled Dolores to take part in a documentary…to tell her story.


The film does much justice on its own as it preserves Dolores Huerta’s legacy because people have tried to erase it.

A must-watch, available on PBS now.
