Che : a revolutionary icon

Summary

Summary: "With ancestors who could be traced back to Galway in Ireland, and mother who was a life-long militant communists, there is little doubt that Ernest "Che" Guevara was born a rebel. In 1956 when Che met Fidel Castro, his rebel blood was stirred by talk of violent revolution and the two men went into battle together to bring freedom to the Cuban people. After they conquered Cuba, they set about spreading revolution and rebellion across South America and Africa. In the early 1960s Cuba frequently clashed with US President John F. Kennedy, and some conspiracy theorists even try to pin the blame on the Castro regime for JFK's assassination. In 1960 Che was the subject of what has been called "the most famous photograph in the world." Captured forever in that moment in time, his face was a ferocious mixture of anger and pan. Alberto Korda's photograph of Che became one of the most recognizable images of the twentieth century, and has since been found on cigarette packs, coffee mugs, baseball caps, posters, and T-shirts. As a Marxist Communist, being the face of such capitalist profiteering would have been Che's worst nightmare." --
