121 La Union Mart-Maceo
2172 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.
329 Jose Mart and Antonio Maceo
4347 Mart was a revolutionary from the 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 black. Maceo went to Key West, Honduras, and other places.
5295 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 influence on the other races outside the Cuban community. Mart died fighting in Santiago de Cuba.
682 For Tampa Cubans, Mart and Maceo's influence is still strong and always will be.
7Cigar factories
8199 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.
9223 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.
