On Fidel Castro

Fidel Castro has died, after decades as the actual and symbolic head of the Cuban revolutionary movement and government. Like most famous leaders, though perhaps to a greater degree, his legacy is fiercely contested, and the reactions to his death range from extreme jubilation to extreme sorrow. Beyond the more standard obituaries detailing his life and accomplishments, read also about his family and their influence over Cuba’s future, and different takes on his legacy, both internationally and in Cuba. For a more visual collation of different opinions, check out these political cartoons drawn to commemorate his death.
