Local judge, Hispanic statesman and community leader E.J. Salcines will give a presentation titled “José Martí in Tampa: 20 Documented Visits” on Monday, June 24, at 7 p.m. in the Reeves Theater at The University of Tampa.
This informative and entertaining presentation is free and open to the public.
E.J. Salcines is the founding member of the Tampa Hispanic Bar Association and has served as a mentor, advisor and role model to many Hispanic judges, attorneys, community leaders and students. Salcines also worked in private practice and served as a top federal prosecutor and the state (prosecuting) attorney and as an appellate judge for the Second District Court of Appeal.
Salcines’ presentation is part of a National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) summer institute that focuses on the rise of the U.S. as a global power in the early 20th century as a consequence of its intervention in Cuba’s War of Independence. The four-week institute includes 30 university and college professors from throughout the U.S. and starts next Monday, June 17.
UT’s Center for Martí Studies Affiliate was awarded a $190,000 grant from NEH to host the institute.
