From PBS: Dolores Huerta is among the most important,
yet least known, activists in American history.
History tells us Cesar Chavez transformed the U.S. labor movement by leading the first farm workers' union. But missing from this story is his equally influential co-founder, Dolores Huerta, who tirelessly led the fight for racial and labor justice alongside Chavez, becoming one of the most defiant feminists of the twentieth century. Her enormous contributions have gone largely unrecognized.
