Overview

Immortalized in fashion, film, and music, Ernesto "Che" Guevara was a trained doctor, writer, military leader, and revolutionary-more than just a man: emblazoned on a T-shirt. When he was a young medical student, Guevara traveled throughout South America, where he witnessed people living in terrible poverty. His travels inspired Guevara to become a radical activist who favored revolution as a way to achieve economic equality. These views led him to Fidel Castro, then a Cuban revolutionary, and the two worked with others to overthrow the U.S.-backed Cuban government under Fulgencio Batista. After this successful insurrection, Guevara went on to incite revolutions in other countries, an occupation that would result in his death.
