In the video below, Dr. Tukufu Zuberi, the Lasry Family Professor of Race Relations, and Professor of Sociology and Africana Studies at the University of Pennsylvania speaks about an exhibition of 33 propaganda posters currently on display at the Penn Museum. Entitled "Black Bodies in Propaganda: The Art of the War Poster," the exhibition focuses on vintage prints that were used for "mobilizing people of color in war efforts." The subject is not one that you normally hear about outside of the month of February, so we thought it was important to share.

The exhibition began in June and will show through March 2.
