The President also referred to the mentions of the Cuban Revolution made by Malcolm in several of his speeches.  He considered it an epic and true reference in the people´s struggle for freedom and independence.

The ceremony became an act fo solidarity, which gathered neighbours of the sorrounding area and from Harlem, a community with which Cuba has longlasting sentimental bonds.
