Cartoon Production Information:

At the close of World War II, the United Auto Workers knew Detroit was going to open factories in the South and that the industry would need an integrated work force. The film was made by some of Hollywood's most innovative talent, including the founders of UPA. Some U.S. Congressmen were sure it was full of lies. Many were racists from Southern states and openly denounced black people as inferior beings. This was the 1940s, and the civil rights movement had not begun. In 1946, Congress stopped the U.S. Army from distributing this film abroad as a tool to combat Adolf Hitler's teachings about a white super race. Later, Congress and other groups attacked, condemned and banned the film, not for its message, but because suspected Communists had worked on the production as scriptwriters (Ring Lardner Jr., Maurice Rapf and Phil Eastman all were blacklisted).

Traditional, Hand-drawn Animation.
