Friends, Colleagues (Compañeros):
Many of you may have already been informed of the free preview screening of the film, “Dolores.” If so, please excuse this duplication of information.
Please inform your family members and friends. Many people sacrificed during this historic period of history.
History is also in the making to have this film “Dolores” shown at Fresno City College so close to César E. Chávez’s birthday, March 31st! I am sure former Fresno City College MEChA students of the 70’s, will reminisce their concurrent struggles during the film’s era; the hiring of Raza faculty, the implementation of La Raza Studies program, to have an annual Cinco de Mayo program and of course access to a college education, etc.
- Parking will be relaxed in Parking Lot “K” which is directly behind the Old Administration Building. (Take Van Ness at corner of McKinley, go north which curves into Maroa, at Weldon, turn right.)
- Parking is also available in the grass area next to the gymnasium. (As per President’s Office information)
¡Nos vemos el 23 de marzo!
Fresno City College, in partnership with ValleyPBS, will be hosting a film screening of Dolores on Friday, March 23rd at 6:00 p.m. in the OAB Auditorium. There will be a Q&A session and a Photo Op with Dolores Huerta after the film. Tickets are free, but you must register online at www.ValleyPBSdolores.eventbrite.com. You can also call 559-226-1800 x290.
“Dolores – is a documentary that explores one of the most important, yet least known activists of our time, Dolores Huerta. Co-founder of the first farm workers union with Cesar Chavez, Dolores tirelessly led the fight for racial and labor justice. This film reveals one of the most defiant feminists of the 20th century – as she continues to fight to this day.” https://www.doloresthemovie.com.
