Cuban historians Adys Cupull and Froilan Gonzalez finished here the launch of the book "Por los Caminos Reales" (Through Royal Roads) about Jose Marti's stay in Honduras, and the documentary "El Fiel Cubano" (The Faithful Cuban) about Cuban-Mexican Pedro Santacilia.
Both writers and researchers spoke about their most recent creations at the seat of the Cuban Embassy to Mexico at an event presided over by Ambassador Manuel Aguilera and the supporter of the Granma Yacht expedition Antonio del Conde, "The Buddy".
The book about Cuba's National Hero had been launched in a previous occasion at the Jose Marti Cultural Center on Hidalgo Avenue of the Mexican capital.
Before that, Cupull and Gonzalez traveled, as part of a wide cultural program, through the central states of Queretaro, Guanajuato, and San Luis Potosi, where they also talked about the result of their more recent research through Central America from which "Por los Caminos Reales" emerged.
In the documentary "El Fiel Cubano", both intellectuals recreated Santacilia's personality, a journalist, writer, poet and historian born in Santiago de Cuba, and in Mexico served as the personal secretary of President Benito Juarez, the distinguished Latin American figure.
Through the testimony of other Cuban historians, both researchers tell of the independence action of Santacilia at the Cuban eastern region and his tie with Mexico.
