The Ballad of Dolores Huerta: A Civil Rights Icon

Course: HIST-054X-95, 2 units, CRN: 35186
Instructor: Nannette Regua

Referred to as the “Dragon Lady,” Dolores Huerta is a co-founder of the United Farm Workers Union (UFW). Alongside local hero and humanitarian, Cesar E. Chavez, Huerta fought to win rights for farm workers. She was involved in crucial aspects of the UFW, such as organizing, negotiating, and political lobbying. Simultaneously, she balanced raising a family as a single mother. At the age of 87 and with the recent release of a documentary on her life, Huerta continues to be committed to labor rights, women’s rights, educational rights, and social justice.
