As a noteworthy figure during the Harlem Renaissance, Richmond Barthé created works that highlighted the power, creativity, and value he saw within the black diaspora.

Stevedore depicts a dock worker who had to load and unload cargo onto ships, which was a common position given to African American men when they served in World War I and World War II. Commonly seen as a low-ranking position, Barthé shows the pride and integrity that these men had, despite them not always having been seen as valid or capable of greater positions in the military.
