A black and white photograph of Mary McLeod Bethune and Marjorie Stewart Joyner posing with the Alpha Phi Chi beautician sorority in Mary McLeod Bethune's home. They are posed behind Mrs. Bethune's desk. Mary McLeod Bethune and Marjorie Stewart Joyner are the only women seated in the picture; Bethune, to the left, in a suit jacket, and Joyner, to the right, with gray hair. Marjorie Stewart Joyner is credited with having invented the perm machine, to assist African American women with their hair, and was a very close friend of Mary McLeod Bethune. The "Marjorie Joyner Residence Hall" on Bethune's campus is named for her. The remaining women are all standing, and are wearing dresses or suits, and hats. Draperies can be seen hanging from the window behind the group. On the back of the photograph is written, "Alpha Phi Chi (Beautician) sorority fraternity convention on campus, mid 1940's." The photographer of the image is unknown.
