In 1896 Winston Churchill wrote about the fear of the rise of black Cubans controlling the government or another island divided like Hispaniola with Haiti and the Dominican Republic
After Winston Churchill returned to England, after his expedition to Cuba, he wrote three pieces on Cuba for the Saturay Review, “The Revolt in Cuba,” and “The Intervention in Cuba” and (again) “The Revolt in Cuba,” published on February 15, March 7 and August 29, 1896.
