Film screening: Dolores
 
 
Date: 19 April 2018 
 
American Studies, School of Modern Languages and Cultures HKU has the pleasure of inviting you to the film screening:

Crossing borders: the many faces of the struggle for a better life in the Iberian American World 

Dolores
Movie screening followed by Skype Q&A with Dolores Huerta

19 April 2018 (Thu), 7:00 pm (6:30 pm reception)
CPD-LG.18, Jockey Club Tower, Centennial Campus, HKU

Moderator: Dr. Tim Gruenewald

Dolores Huerta is among the most important, yet least known, activists in American history. An equal partner in co-founding the first farm workers unions with Cesar Chavez, her enormous contributions have gone largely unrecognized. Dolores tirelessly led the fight for racial and labor justice alongside Chavez, becoming one of the most defiant feminists of the twentieth century—and she continues the fight to this day, at 88.

Crossing borders: the many faces of the struggle for a better life in the Iberian American World (film series) is co-organized by the Spanish, Portuguese, and American Studies programs at HKU, with the support of the Department of Comparative Literature and the CSGC. Co-sponsored by the US, Mexican and Spanish Consulates General in Hong Kong.
