Beginning Friday, the Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center will present That’s Not Fair!/¡No Es Justo!: Emma Tenayuca’s Struggle for Justice, the center’s spring production. Adapted for theater from poet Carmen Tafolla and attorney Sharyll Teneyuca’s children’s book of the same name, That’s Not Fair! tells the story of Emma Tenayuca, a union organizer and labor rights leader who led 12,000 people in the pecan shellers strike of 1938. Staged in celebration of Tenayuca’s 100th birthday, this second incarnation of the play will be accompanied by live music and performances by the Guadalupe Dance Company, and sets out to honor the Mexican American activist who’s been recognized as a heroic figure in San Antonio’s history.
