“A Yellow Rose From Texas” The Story of Emma Tenayuca
Fresno, California, USA
Late comers admitted within 15 min.
Disclosures: preferably 8 years old and up (however all ages allowed). Issues of racism, discrimination and prejudice.
Labor organizer and civil rights leader Emma Tenayuca helped Mexicans achieve a sense of unparalleled confidence and group pride as racial minorities in the 1930’s. Her legacy is that she challenged an important enterprise, the power structure of San Antonio city government, called for equal pay for equal work during a difficult time of wage differentials—the Depression era, and she articulated the integral issue of Mexican-American identity.
