Fidel Castro, the illegitimate son of a successful Creole sugar plantation owner, was born in Cuba in 1926. He was a rebellious boy and at the age of thirteen helped to organize a strike of sugar workers ( mostly Black) on his fathers plantation. Both his parents were illiterate but they were determined that their children should receive a good education and Fidel was sent to a Jesuit boarding school. Although he disliked the strict discipline of the school, Fidel soon showed that he was extremely intelligent.

However, except for history, he preferred sports to academic subjects. Fidel was good at running, soccer and baseball, and in 1944 was awarded the prize as Cubas best all-round school athlete. After he had finished his education Castro became a lawyer in Havana. As he tended to take the cases of poor people (mostly Black) who could not afford to pay him, Castro was constantly short of money. Castros experience as a lawyer made him extremely critical of the great inequalities in wealth that existed in Cuba. Like many other Cubans, Castro resented the wealth and power of the American businessmen who appeared to control the country.

Castro also came close to death in prison. Captain Pelletier was instructed to put poison in Castros food. The man refused and instead revealed his orders to the Cuban people. Pelletier was Court-Martial but, concerned about world opinion, Batista decided not to have Castro killed. The rest is history. Therlee Gipson
