"United We Win"

This 1943 government poster offers an image of racial solidarity among wartime workers under the slogan "United We Win." Although African-Americans did find enhanced opportunities thanks to the high demand for workers and the Roosevelt Administration's creation of the Fair Employment Practices Committee, many black workers continued to encounter discrimination in the workplace during the war years.
