"The Last Ride of José Martí" is a project created by O, Miami 2014 as an homage to the continued significance of the life and work of the Cuban poet José Martí. On April 22, 2014, actor Ivan Lopez—dressed as Martí—rode down Calle Ocho on the back of a white horse and distribute roses outfitted with Martí poems. Martí first made a quick stop at Versailles for a cafecito, then traveled down the heart of Calle Ocho on horseback, and finally give a reading on 13th Court.
O, Miami is a Knight-funded festival with the goal of every single person in Miami-Dade County encountering a poem during the month of April.
