Stories from the Bay of Pigs: An Intergenerational Educational Experience

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Momentum Miami students prepared for and filmed interviews twenty-seven participants of the Bay of Pigs Invasion.  Through these interviews, Momentum Miami and the students experienced first-hand how these men overcame injury, exile, imprisonment, and, in many cases, torture, to become senators, commissioners, bankers, media personalities, federal agents, military leaders and surgeons.  Though the Bay of Pigs was not a military victory, the end result was that the underpinnings of today's Miami were formed.  And, fifty years after the Invasion, these men continue to impact Miami. With the guidance of MWCC, the students produced four, five minute mini-documentaries, entitled "Stories from the Bay of Pigs: An Intergenerational Educational Experience.” The films centered on the themes of patriotism, courage, brotherhood and legacy.
