INTERNATIONAL FILM SERIES - DOLORES 

WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 22, 2021

7:30 PM 

CFA 107

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 87. With intimate and unprecedented access to this intensely private mother to eleven, the film reveals the raw, personal stakes involved in committing one's life to social change. Directed by Peter Bratt.

 

HISPANIC HERITAGE MONTH VIRTUAL POTLUCK

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 28, 2021

VIRTUAL

Some recipes have been passed down through generations, and some we found on Pinterest, but regardless - love, heritage, and culture have been shared through food for centuries. In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, we are celebrating the very food that has brought together friends and families by sharing it with Hanoverians. Join us virtually on September 28 at 7:00 p.m. with your favorite Hispanic drink and/or food to discuss the recipe, tell the story behind it, and chat with other Hanoverians. We hope to be able to put together a recipe book after the event to share everyone's contributions! To register, click here.
