Lucius Walker: A dear friend of the Cuban Revolution

NYC Havana Blog

Cubans fondly remember the legacy of U.S. Reverend Lucius Walker, founder of the solidarity movement, Pastors for Peace, and a dear friend of the Revolution.

Born in New Jersey on August 3, 1930, he graduated from Shaw University in Raleigh (North Carolina) in 1954. The pastor of the Salvation Baptist Church toured hundreds of cities defying the laws of his country to bring tons of products to the island, scarce during the nineties due to the tightening of the unjust U.S. economic, commercial and financial blockade and the fall of the socialist camp.
