Malcolm X College Library Virtual Exhibits

Monthly featured resources and CCC collections

Dolores Huerta waving at a speaking event

This Hispanic Heritage Month the Malcolm X College Library is featuring works on Dolores Huerta. Huerta is a Civil Rights Icon, founding the Agricultural Workers Association, and the National Farm Workers Association. Huerta is known for coining the term "si se puede," but also for breaking down gender barriers and advocating for women's rights. Though her work has been closely associated with Cesar E. Chavez, she stands on her own as an activist and American Hero. 

Join us on October 4th for our Monday Midday Movie feature, the 2017 documentary, Dolores. Join us as we view the Documentary and discuss CCC Resources like the eBooks found below and articles linked on this page. RSVP for the Zoom Link.

To learn more about Dolores Huerta please visit her foundation website, or check out readings available through CCC libraries on our Virtual Exhibit LibGuide
