MORE ABOUT "DOLORES"
With unprecedented access to this intensely private mother of 11, Dolores chronicles Huerta’s life from her childhood in Stockton to her early years with the United Farm Workers, from her work with the headline-making grape boycott launched in 1965 to her role in the feminist movement of the 70s to her continued work as a fearless activist. Featuring interviews with Gloria Steinem, Luis Valdez, Hillary Clinton, Angela Davis, her children and more, Dolores is an intimate and inspiring portrait of a passionate champion of the oppressed and an indomitable woman willing to accept the personal sacrifices involved in committing one’s life to social change.

BROADCAST PREMIERE
Dolores airs Tuesday, March 27 at 9pm on WKAR HD 23.1.
