Freeing Movie: Dolores Huerta

Published January 31, 2018 by Nan Mykel

Since I totalled my car Jan. 21, I have been wheeless so was glad Alexa suggested she pick me up for a free movie.  The free movie was a documentary on Dolores Huerta, first of a series on Women Pioneers sponsored/presented by O.U.’s College of Fine Arts at the local Athena Cinema.  I viewed it during the timeframe that our president was delivering the State of the Union Address. and among other things the documentary addressed many of the issues current on the political scene,  historically (although Dolores Huerta is still alive and beautiful at 87).  She partnered for years with Cesar Chavez in the fight for racial and labor justice. Mexican farm laborers at work and in protest are spotlighted from archived film.

What got me on this kick is the freeing effect it had on me personally, in that Dolores has led such an active life outside society’s restraints.  (Almost totally outside). She is a free, loving, courageous woman who has always responded to her inner drummer.  The experience has given me a shot in the arm.
