    Evaristo Estenoz Article #421
    A Pioneer of Afro-Cuban political mobilization
    Tulia Falleti, Article Author
    Evaristo Estenoz was one of the central leaders in the black rebellion that took place in Cuba in 1912. Probably born in Santiago de Cuba, Evaristo Estenoz was a builder by occupation, but after fighting against Spain in the Independence War (1895-1898), he won his reputation as a member of the military leadership. In 1905, he visited New York with Cuban lawyer and intellectual Rafael Serra to study the condition of the black population in the United States. He was a member of the 'Partido Independiente de Color' (Independent Party of People of Color) and editor of the party's weekly newspaper 'Prevision.' Evaristo Estenoz was killed on June 27 of 1912 in the armed conflicts between the 'independientes' that he led, and the Cuban army and voluntary militias supported by President José Miguel Gómez.
