At the Martin Luther King Center, where Lucius Walker´s ashes lies in, his daughter, Gail Walker, recalled her father’s struggle for social justice in the United States and in favor of the right of peoples to sovereignty and free self-determination.
She also highlighted her father´s constant defense for human rights and for spreading the truth about the Cuban Revolution, Cuban people, and about Fidel Castro.
Lucius Walker led 21 friendship caravans from 1992, in order to send humanitarian assistance and medicines to Cuba requesting no authorization from US authorities.
The tribute was attended by directors of the Cuban Institute of Friendship with the Peoples (ICAP), the team of collegiate coordination of Martin Luther King Center, and officials from the Office of Religious Affairs of the Communist Party of Cuba.
