Garcia Interviewer: Herbert Jones Inter view date: September 6, 1978 Interview location: Unknown Transcribed by: Unknown Transcription date: Unknown Detailed Summary by: Mary Beth Isaacson Detailed Summary date: March 19, 2009 Final Edit by: Maria Kreiser Final Edit date: March 19, 2009 La Union Mart’ Maceo Mr. Garcia is a member of La Union Mart’ Maceo, the club for black Cubans. In Spanish, he describes some of the significant officers and members. It has about 350 members. Jose Mart’ and Antonio Maceo Mart’ was a revolutionary from th e Cuban war of independence. Mr. Garcia lists several dates in Spanish. Maceo died in San Pedro, Cuba. "He's a colored man, a big man." When Mart’ came to speak at the cigar factories, people crowded around to talk to him. Mart’ was white and Maceo was bla ck. Maceo went to Key West, Honduras, and other places. Mart’ spoke at many of the cigar factories in Tampa. He was an organizer who made propaganda and collected money for Cuban independence. He also went to New York to do this. He did not have much infl uence on the other races outside the Cuban community. Mart’ died fighting in Santiago de Cuba. For Tampa Cubans, Mart’ and Maceo's influence is still strong and always will be. Cigar factories Mr. Garcia came to Tampa from Cuba in 1922. There were about twenty cigar factories then, which are all gone now. "There is no factory now in Tampa." The cigars are made by machines now, not by hand. There were many black Cubans working in the factories. Mr. Garcia worked in the Perfecto Garcia factory, which had about 500 workers, more than forty of whom were black. After the revolution in Cuba, the factory was closed.
