Kate Smith Speaking for America Poster

United States, c. 1946
14 x 11 in (36 x 28 cm)
ID #FF17D-PK1-L-07

"Victory will mean nothing if we are infected by race hatreds, social prejudice, religious bigotry let loose by the enemy. They are the diseases that eat away the fibres of peace. And where are these diseases going to be exterminated? At a conference table in Potsdam? Not by a long shot. In your own city, your church, perhaps in your own home. You and I must do it -- together."

This original vintage poster is from a campaign run by Scholastic Magazines. In a dual effort to support American war efforts and promote social justice, these prints used various figureheads and uber-patriotic quotes. They were hung up in schools across the United States, trying to ensure the future generation would receive the messages. The main point is clear -- diversty is what makes America, America.

Year: c. 1946
