Robert Garcia
Garcia’s beauty and enthusiasm made him an object of desire and veneration among the rank and file. But his irrepressibility belied his worsening condition. He died on May 16, 1993, an activist to the end, as suggested by the note he left to accompany this photograph: “I would whisper to myself as I was marching, shouting, demonstrating, fighting back: ‘Robert, every step you take is a tear you don’t want to cry, every arrest is an act of hope.’ ”
