"Latin America Looks at Cuba"

Prospects of Mankind

VHS 60 min.


Program Number

Date Aired
January 1962

Program Guests: Adlai Stevenson, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations (who introduces the program in a special ten minute sequence with Eleanor Roosevelt); Roberto Campos, Brazilian Ambassador to the United Nations; Theodore Draper, specialist in international Communism and author of Castro's Cuba and Cuba and U.S. Policy; Ted Szulc, Latin American correspondent for the New York Times. The program explores the possibility of a censure of Cuba at the forthcoming meeting of the Organization of American States, and the reasons why a number of Latin American countries are reluctant to take such a step. The guests also analyze Castro's Cuba as a staging area for propaganda and military intervention in other Latin American countries, and the Kennedy Alliance for Progress as a counter measure to the Cuban Youth. Opening segment with Adlai Stevenson was recorded at the United Nations in New York.
