Bay of Pigs Reunion

Premiere Date:Friday, March 28, 2008

On April 14, 1961, a CIA-backed invasion by 1400 Cuban exiles and a number of American citizens was unsuccessful in its attempt to overthrow Cuban President Fidel Castro. This invasion, is called the “Bay of Pigs” after the name of the bay where it took place. President John F. Kennedy authorized the plan, which was devised during the last months of the Eisenhower administration. Alabama’s Air Guard soldiers participated in the invasion. In this episode, Alabamians talk about the unsuccessful coup, what went wrong, and how the event continues to play a role in U.S. – Cuba relations.
