Eugenio María de Hostos
Mayagüez, P.R. 1839 – Santo Domingo, República Dominicana, 1903
Eugenio María de Hostos defended the abolition of slavery in Puerto Rico and Cuba. Just like his fellow countryman Ramón Emeterio Betances and the Cuban José Martí, he thought about a confederation of the Latin American nations. The confederation was an “insular and continental ideal” that had its origin in the mind of Simón Bolivar, who along with Hostos encouraged Betances, Máximo Gómez and later on Martí. He defended the independence of three Antilles: Cuba, the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico. He promoted scientific education and suffrage for women. He advocated for a public, civil and secular education for men and women. He is considered as one of the 50 most important educators of all time.
