Happy Birthday, Che Gevara (June 14, 1928 – October 9, 1967)According to Wikipedia:
"Argentine Marxist revolutionary, physician, author, guerrilla leader, diplomat and military theorist."
Of course, to Cubans he was an architect/warrior of a revolution, either heroic or a craven mass-executioner, or both...
"It is complicated." But Che is a major part of the DNA of Cuba for the past 60+ years.
And in Cuba still, it is as it seemed in 1959, in many (not all) ways, and especially the influence of Che, Fidel, and Cienfuegos is everywhere still.
Sadly, for most Americans now, visits to Cuba by Americans - for education, culture, anything -is being prohibited by the President who seems to love (other) communist/socialist countries! (SMH)
Viva la revolution! (soon?!)
