UCI Libraries wants to help you discover, learn about, and celebrate people and ideas that history has overlooked because of the color of their skin, gender identity, or sexual orientation. This series, ReWatching History: Uncovering Diversity in Our Past, will point to streaming videos already in our collection that you can watch anytime.
This page focuses on ADVOCATES. These are people who have worked to correct wrongs and educate the public. Examples like Edward Said, a literary critic advocate for Palestinian justice. Or Dolores Huerta, the Chicana labor activist who tirelessly worked to organize farmworkers for better working conditions. And mothers who work to curb illegal dumping of radioactive waste so that their families and neighbors can live in a healthy environment. We hope that you enjoy discovering more about these advocates!
