A black and white image of Mary McLeod Bethune and another unknown African American woman laying a wreath at the foot of the statue of Toussiant L'Ouverture. They are both wearing dresses and each have a hand on the wreath. Mary McLeod Bethune is standing at the left. In the background can be seen trees. The statue itself depicts a person reaching out to a bust of a man which is placed atop a large pole. On the back of the photograph, someone incorrectly identified the statue as the Jose Martin statue, but the pole in the image has the inscription of Toussiant L'Ouverture's name. The photographer of the image is unknown.
