Civil Rights and Social Justice Film Festival
February 21 @ 11:30 am - 2:00 pm
The film festival continues. Today’s line up is
11:30: Viva La Causa: focuses on one of the seminal events in the march for human rights—the grape strike and boycott led by César Chávez and Dolores Huerta in the 1960s. Viva la Causa shows how thousands of people from across the nation joined in a struggle for justice for the most exploited people in our country—the workers who put food on our tables.
12:15: First Daughter and the Black Snake: Winona LaDuke believes Big Oil is the black snake predicted in indigenous prophecy to bring the earth’s destruction. When proposed new oil pipelines threaten sacred wild rice lakes, Winona dreams of organizing a spiritual ride, riding her horse against the current of oil “because a horse can kill a snake.”
