Dolores is a documentary film about the life and work of legendary civil rights activist Dolores Huerta. A class screening of the film may complement a US history, social studies or ethnic studies curriculum. Taught in conjunction with this guide, the film will empower students to think critically about the ongoing fight for equal rights for people of color and women in the United States, and about the meaning of sustained activism, both personally and politically. Discussion questions and supplemental materials facilitate further research into related topics such as intersectional feminism, Chicano/Chicana cultural identity, and the importance of recognizing the work of activists in the American cultural narrative.
