Bob Hope Speaking for America Poster
United States, c. 1946
14 x 11 in (36 x 28 cm)
"You know, one thing the guys overseas caught on to in a hurry was that a buddy's race, religion or ancestry just didn't matter. A bullet coming your way didn't know the difference, and you didn't ask the guy who shared your foxhole where his parents came from or what church he went to back home. He was in there pitching on your team. That was what mattered up front -- and it's all that matters back home."
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
