Dolores Huerta: Revolution in the Fields / Revolución en los Campos shares the compelling story of legendary activist and leader Dolores Huerta (b.1930) and the farm workers movement of the 1960s and 70s. It is a quintessentially American tale of struggle and sacrifice, of courage and victory. The exhibition explores Huerta’s public life as an activist and co-founder of the United Farm Workers (UFW), and what led her to become a Latina civil rights icon. In her life as a communicator, organizer, lobbyist, and contract negotiator, teacher, mother, her unparalleled leadership skills helped dramatically improve the lives of farm workers. Visitors will broaden their understanding of the farm workers movement through a careful look at Dolores Huerta’s significant—but often under-acknowledged—contributions. The exhibition also explores how workers of different ethnic and racial backgrounds came together to empower the movement, and how the arts played an essential role. In addition, visitors will come to understand Huerta’s far-reaching impact and important legacy. Dolores Huerta: Revolution in the Fields / Revolución en los Campos features bilingual text (English-Spanish), reproductions of historic and personal photographs, and graphic elements.
