Join art historian John Faubion as he reveals the compelling story behind the print Setting the Rising Sun by Lawrence Tenney Stevens. Like the many examples in the Black Bodies in Propaganda: The Art of the War Poster exhibition, Setting the Rising Sun was intended to mobilize African Americans in a time of war, in this instance in the days following the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.
