Bonnie Raitt + Dolores Huerta | Sí, se puede


(system) #1

Bonnie Raitt: legendary musician, feminist, activist. Dolores Huerta: legendary organizer, feminist, activist. Two women who both achieved great successes in their fields and who are not stopping anytime soon. But while one was marching on the streets for migrant laborers, the other was headlining concerts bringing attention to the risks of nuclear energy. Two distinctly different women who chose such opposite paths and came from radically different backgrounds, but both chose to spend their lives trying to make the world a better place for all of us. In this conversation, Raitt and Huerta talk about their passions, their regrets, their fears, and most of all their dreams for future generations.

Dolores Huerta talks about how "Sí, se puede" began. And I particularly enjoyed hearing how Bonnie Raitt's Quaker background influenced the message of her music.
