American Comandante Preview

Preview: Season 28 Episode 1 | 30s

When William Morgan was executed outside a Havana prison on March 11, 1961, his strange story seemed to vanish from the popular imagination as quickly as it had appeared; it was lost in the classified archives of the Cold War; and it was edited out of Cuban history by Fidel Castro’s retelling of the revolution. "American Comandante" premieres November 17 at 9/8c on PBS American Experience.
