        Origins of a Leader’s Voice | Dolores

        This segment includes an overview of civil rights leader Dolores Huerta’s background and the work she continues to pursue. Major political and social leaders like Luis Valdez talk about the expectations of Latina women of the 1960s and 1970s to assimilate and to marry. Dolores discusses her upbringing and how she challenged the expectations of a Latina woman in the United States by organizing with Fred Ross and the Community Service Organization to protest police brutality and organize workers.
