Fidel Castro’s Long Lost Interview

“The Twenty-sixth of July Movement is…not a communist movement and it differs from communism in several respects.” - Fidel Castro posted on

In 1959, just a few weeks after he came to power, Fidel Castro spoke candidly with American journalist Clark Hewitt Galloway about the importance of the Cuban Revolution, his feelings on the Guantanamo Bay Naval Base, and most interesting of all, how he was not a communist.

The animated video is part of the PBS Digital Studios series Blank On Blank:
