See Bonnie Raitt and Dolores Huerta in This Brave Nation Episode 2

We're thrilled to bring you the second installment of This Brave Nation, our new online documentary series from Brave New Foundation and The Nation. This week, we're pairing legendary blues musician and activist Bonnie Raitt with iconic union organizer Dolores Huerta: two distinctly different feminists who hail from radically different backgrounds, but who have come together here because of their devotion to progressive change.

In this conversation, Raitt and Huerta talk about their passions, regrets, fears, and most of all, their dreams for future generations.
