Radicals And Revolutionaries: Politics In Early Ybor City says
As the 2016 election season takes hold, join Dr. Sarah McNamara and Manny Leto for a look back at Ybor City’s political and labor history.

One of Florida’s first Cuban exile communities, Ybor City was the epicenter of the Cuban independence movement in the 1890s, was home to labor unions and progressive activists in the 1920s, and rallied to support the Spanish Civil War in the 1930s.

Manny and Sarah will highlight Ybor’s charged political history during this free program.

Plus, special guest Acho Brother will provide music before and after the talk.

Dr. Sarah McNamara is a PhD candidate in the University of North Carolina’s Department of History. Her dissertation, “From Picket Lines to Picket Fences: Latinas and the Remaking of the Jim Crow South,” traces the transformation of Latina/o politics and culture between the Great Depression and the civil rights movement in Florida.

Manny Leto is the director of marketing at the Tampa Bay History Center. He is the former editor of Cigar City Magazine, and has written extensively on the history of Ybor City.

Acho Brother makes awesome music that you should listen to.

This program is sponsored by the National Endowment for the Humanities and American Library Association’s Latino Americans: 500 Years of History grant initiative.

Radicals and Revolutionaries is part of the City of Tampa's Archives Awareness Week.

NOTE: THIS EVENT TAKES PLACE AT NEW WORLD BREWERY 1313 E. 8TH AVENUE IN YBOR CITY.
