During World War II the U.S. Goverment was concerned about the demoralizing effects of racial prejudice and discrimination on the American population and its impact on the war effort. To counter such racial attitudes, posters, pamphlets, and films were produced to highlight the participation and achievement of African Americans in military and civilian life.

This inspiring poster was based on a photograph by Alexander Liberman, showing workers at an integrated aircraft plant in 1943. It was originally printed by the U.S. Government Printing Office for the War Manpower Commission.
