American Experience

The Failed Revolution

Clip: Season 28 Episode 1 | 1m 39s

William Morgan held out hope that the Cuban revolution would follow through on the ideals he had fought for. But more and more he saw things he didn't like or agree with: former comrades being arrested for speaking out against the government, the nationalization of newspapers and banks, jails filling up with prisoners. "American Comandante" premieres Nov. 17 at 9/8c on PBS American Experience.
