"Dolores Huerta: Revolution in the Fields/Revolucón en los Campos"
Debuting at the California Museum, “Dolores Huerta: Revolution in the Fields / Revolución en Los Campos” is a new traveling exhibition from the Smithsonian Institution exploring the life and legacy of the legendary Latina activist who broke barriers for more than six decades, starting with her work advocating for farm workers’ rights in the 1960s and 1970s. Inspired by the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery’s exhibition “One Life: Dolores Huerta,” the bilingual touring exhibition includes reproductions of historic photographs, a smart phone audio tour app and a documentary video. As part of the inaugural installation, the California Museum’s presentation features hands-on civic engagement activities and supplemental artifacts on loan from Huerta’s personal collection and other institutions further illustrating her ground-breaking but often overlooked achievements and the history of California’s farm worker movement. On view Mar. 9 through July 7, 2019 – only at the California Museum in downtown Sacramento. Open Tues. - Sat. 10:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. and Sun. 12:00-5:00 p.m. Admission: $7-9.

1900–1910: Tycoons & Trailblazers History Symposium
Come explore the first decade of the 20th Century with national and regional authors, historians and experts. Our rural nation was about the business of peace, prosperity and progress. Americans were optimistic and self-confident. In the 35 years since the Civil War the United States had become the first among the world’s industrial powers. The rise of new technologies was transforming America and the world from the good old days to complex modern times. Muckraking journalists published exposes on many moral problems: child labor, teeming slums, widespread offenses by corrupt politicians and ruthless corporations. This history symposium will explore some of the stories of this new century.

Community Event, Living History
1906 Earthquake Living History Day
This interpretive Living History event is designed to re-enact some little known events connected to what is known as California’s “Big One” – the 1906 San Francisco Earthquake and Fire. Visitors will be surrounded by docents in period attire as they re-create the memorable scenes of the recovery efforts. Some key moments in time include local dignitaries as they assisted refugees – many of whom camped out on the Capitol grounds or at Sutter’s Fort – and Sacramento women as they aided Bay Area families in need by providing meal tickets, clothing and blankets. And, guests will be close-at-hand when then-California Governor George Pardee receives an important telegram – not a text, email or phone call – from President Theodore Roosevelt offering a staggering sum of $1 million for disaster relief.
