Boys playing that they are shooting machine guns at a passing aeroplane.

It is a very interesting scene. According to the period, in 1941,  World War II was happening. Many African Americans served in the war. Even children wanted to participate in this war. They may just want to play. I see their smiling faces.


In this painting, children are taught to shoot. Their poses are the same which is so cool to me. In the modern time, the people’s life standard is improved. Looking at their guns, they are so nice.

Even though those two pictures are both about children shooting, they reflect different societies.
