This is a great addition for any collector of the Cuban Revolution Memorabilia The Cuban Literacy Campaign (Campaña Nacional de Alfabetización en Cuba) was a year-long effort to abolish illiteracy in Cuba after the Cuban Revolution. It began on January 1 and ended on December 22, 1961, becoming the world's most ambitious and organized literacy campaign. The Literacy Campaign was designed to force contact between sectors of society that would not usually interact. As Fidel Castro put it in 1961 while addressing literacy teachers, “You will teach, and you will learn”. Volunteers from the cities were often ignorant of the poor conditions of rural citizens until their experiences during the literacy campaign. Besides literacy, the campaign aimed to create a collective identity of “unity, an attitude of combat, courage, intelligence, and a sense of history.” Politicized educational materials were used to further these ideals. The effort was labeled a movement of “the people”, and gave citizens a common goal to work towards, increasing solidarity.
