Havana, September 9 (RHC)-- Cubans paid tribute to U.S. Reverend Lucius Walker, a good friend of the Cuban people and their Revolution, on occasion of the 5th anniversary of his death.
A Baptist minister, Lucius Walker served as executive director of the Inter-religious Foundation for Community Organization IFCO/ Pastors for Peace from the 1960s until his death on September 7, 2010, at the age of 80.
