Dolores Huerta is a major figure in California history. In the mid-1960s, she stood side-by-side with Cesar Chavez through the Delano Grape Strike. Together, and with others, they secured better working conditions and wages for farm workers across the state.
Now, Huerta's life is the subject of a new exhibition at the Smithsonian's National Portrait Gallery. "One Life: Dolores Huerta" is the first in the series dedicated to a Latina.
