Marker text: CRADLE OF CUBAN LIBERTY
On this corner was located El Liceo Cubano, a tobacco stripping house converted into a Cuban social center in 1886. This is the cradle of Cuban independence. Here, on Nov. 26-27, 1891, Jose Marti delivered the two speeches, "Con Todos y Para Todos" and "Los Pinos Nuevos", and drafted "Las Resoluciones" which became the program of the united Cuban Revolutionary Party and eventually secured the independence of Cuba from Spain in 1898.
Erected by the Greater Tampa Chamber Of Commerce, 1962
