He was the son of poor Spanish immigrants and grew up in Havana during Cuba's first struggle for independence. By 1869, José Martí had published his first newspaper before quickly being arrested. Fast forward to 1891, when he started the Cuban Revolutionary Party, and we meet the man who rallied Cuban cigar-makers in Ybor City to support Cuban independence. Retired Second District Court of Appeal Judge Emiliano Jose "E.J." Salcines, Jr. looks at how Martí made Tampa the cradle of Cuban independence from Spain. Join us for this memorable Florida Conversations at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 18.
