An American Photo

This must be the most powerful Propaganda v. Reality photo ever taken. The poster proclaims the World's Highest Standard of Living, There's no way like the American Way, and depicts a happy white family grinning in their car. Even the dog is white! Below the poster stands a queue of black Americans on the breadline. Margaret Bourke-White captured Kentucky Flood. She was born on 14 June 1904.
