SAN ANTONIO – A Texas-based bilingual civil rights play will make its debut in San Antonio this month.
“Crystal City 1969″ will open to San Antonio audiences from Jan. 19-22 at the Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center at 723 S Brazos St.
According to a news release, the show pays tribute to Mexican-American civil rights history that took place during the 1960′s in south Texas schools.
“Touring Crystal City, 1969 to the Guadalupe, is exciting because we are bringing a vital story of Mexican-American civil rights history to San Antonio, the hotbed of the Texas Chicano movement in the 60′s,” said Director David Lozano.
“This tour stop allows us to share this important story with people in a different region of Texas. We expect folks will show up not just from San Antonio but from surrounding cities and towns,” said Lozano.
Tickets to the show are available online.
According to a news release, people over the age of 60 receive a complimentary admission courtesy of the Gonzaba Foundation.
