The ANA Educational Foundation (AEF) offers Race & Ethnicity in Advertising as an educational resource.
These advertisements, created from 1890--today, express a range of ideas about race and ethnicity. While many of these ads represent widespread thinking among the dominant populations of their respective times, they can be deeply disturbing and offensive. AEF provides these images, not as an endorsement of their content, but in an educational effort to more fully understand advertising. We hope that by studying these advertisements users will deepen their knowledge about race, ethnicity, advertising and consumer culture in America and become more critical thinkers in the process.
