From 1960 to 1982 Armando Valladares, now 78 years old, languished in Fidel Castro’s prisons. He survived because of his faith in Christ: See “Lifetime achievement.” I interviewed Valladares on Nov. 6 in Miami.
When Fidel Castro came to power in January 1959, what were your thoughts? I was hopeful, thinking he would respect human dignity.
