A black and white image of Mary McLeod Bethune and a unknown caucasian female standing with their arms wrapped around each other in front of the Toussiant L'Ouverture monument. Mary McLeod Bethune is standing to the right of the unknown female. They are both wearing dresses, and are admiring the statue. The statue itself depicts a man reaching a branch out to a bust atop a the pole with the inscription on it. On the back of the photograph, someone has incorrectly identified the statue as the Jose Martin statue, but the pole has the inscription with Toussiant L'Ouverture's name on it. In the background can be seen trees and houses. The photographer of the image is unknown.
