The Life of Che Guevara

Experts discuss the life and legacy of Cuban revolutionary figure, Ernesto “Che” Guevara. After touring throughout Central and South America, Guevara witnessed the millions of people living in poverty and decided that he wanted to do something about it. The solution to the poverty in his mind was communism. He later became Fidel Castro’s second-in-command when he joined him in overthrowing Cuban dictator, Fulgencio Batista, in 1959. After spurring the Cuban Revolution, Guevara wanted to spread revolution to other parts of the world. He first went to the Congo where he was unsuccessful, and then made his way to Bolivia, where he was eventually captured by Bolivian forces backed by the CIA and executed on October 9, 1967.
