Propaganda is a technique of communication that relies on stereotype and manipulation to achieve its aim of shaping attitudes, controlling behavior, and silencing thought and dialogue. While propaganda is considered here within a specific historical moment, it continues to have an impact on the world.

This video was created to examine the primary functions of propaganda in the hope of enhancing the potential for learning through the objects in this exhibition.

SCMA invited people from a range of backgrounds to share their thoughts, whether scholarly or personal, in their own words and from their own perspectives.
