That's Not Fair! / ¡No Es Justo!: Emma Tenayuca's Struggle for Justice returns to the Guadalupe Theater for a special one-night performance in conjunction with the National Latino Children’s Literature Conference at UTSA.

Adapted for the stage from Carmen Tafolla, Sharyll Teneyuca, and Terry Ybanez's children's book of the same title, That’s Not Fair brings Emma Tenayuca’s passionate and true story to life. Told with live music and dance performances by the Guadalupe Dance Company, this play honors a heroic figure in Mexican-American history and is sure to educate, inspire, and touch the hearts and minds of audiences from all walks of life. Emma’s story will now come to life and her voice heard again on the Guadalupe Theater stage.

Special Presentation: Authors Dr. Carmen Tafolla and Sharyll Teneyuca will give a pre-show presentation on opening night about the Life of Emma Tenayuca as well as host a Q & A session following the performance. They will also have copies of their children’s book for sale and will sign copies for audience members.

About the Play: Adapted from the children’s book of the same title written by renowned author, educator and literary figure Dr. Carmen Tafolla and attorney and legal professional Sharyll Teneyuca (Emma Tenayuca’s niece), the play will enjoy its second San Antonio production. First workshopped in 2009 at the SAY Si Blackbox Theater, the play has been further developed by Carmen Tafolla and Guadalupe Director of Performing Arts Joel C. Settles.
