Cuba and the U.S. : Feuding Neighbors
This video program tells the real story behind the highly publicized custody battle over Elian Gonzalez- a story of deep animosity between the U.S. and Cuba that has lasted for almost half a century. In this timely program, students will learn about the history of this feud from the time Fidel Castro overthrew Fulgencio Batista in 1959 to the present, and how the events that ensued have affected both the U.S. and Cuba. Includes a 12-page teacher's guide with reproducible activities and lesson ideas, and a classroom poster showing a historic timeline of Cuban/American relations since 1959.
