America’s Strength Pictured here is a poster entitled "America's Strength," which describes the differences between the strength of Germany and the strength of the United States, and encourages workers not to treasure wages and profits, but treasure the sacrifice of their labor for the war effort. This poster was produced by the United States Department of Labor and, like many other propaganda posters, was distributed to American factories in order to encourage workers to maximize efficiency for the war effort. Want to learn more about our holdings related to World War I and more? Check out our Guide to World War One holdings: https://www.archives.gov/philadelphia/finding-aids/wwi-guide.

Why does Anthony have a crush on ILL DOOTS? “ILL DOOTS is my first ensemble. The members have changed. The sound has expanded. The explorations have shifted. Even the mission has evolved --- but the need to create has always driven us forward, that has not changed. No matter the shape and sound of ILL DOOTS the product never exists without full respect for the necessity of the process; each individual's process as well as the process of communing, listening, and collaborating together.” On December 15 come out to the Hothouse CRUSH Series featuring Ill DOOTS in the Wilma's Good Karma Cafe.
