Danny Kaye Speaking for America Poster
United States, c. 1946
14 x 11 in (36 x 28 cm)
"Do you believe that redheads are smarter than brunettes? If somebody said that men with blue eyes fought more bravely overseas, wouldn't you call that just plain double talk? Well don't let any double-dealing power-seekers talk you into thinking that any particular racial or religious group is better than another. Democracy calls for a united team. Let's keep it on the beam!"
This original vintage poster is from a campaign run by Scholastic Magazines. In a dual effort to honors American veterans 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
