Storyboard Text

  • The Bay of Pigs Ava Taube 
  • In 1959, Fidel Castro took over as Cuba's Prime Minister. He began spreading his Communist ideals all over Cuba. 
  • President Kennedy was nervous about having a Communist country that close to America. 
  • He decided to have a group of Cuban exiles, known as La Brigada, be trained by the CIA and invade Cuba to start a revolution. 
  • La Brigada was brought to Cuba by boat, so that American airplanes would not have to be used. Kenneday didn't want anyone to know of America's involvement. 
  • Castro knew that La Brigada was coming, and in just two days his troops had captured or killed nearly everyone.
  • The failure had exposed an American plot to overthrow a government. The results also made America seem weak and unorganized.
