Photographic educational aids have become more and more common in the last few decades and provide a much more thorough view of American culture. Not only are important historical events addressed, such as 'Dream of a King', but other aspects of society are explored as well. These cultural development posters show the more mundane aspects of life, whether it's 'Ray Charles-At the Palladium, LA, 1973' or 'Jackie Robinson Stealing Home, May 15, 1952'.
Understanding the past is the key to unlocking the future. By using American history posters, students are given a face to go along with the facts of history. They are given an event that's immortalized in a historic image, images that goes on to become another piece of history and find a special place in their hearts.
