A black and white image of a Bethune-Cookman University parade float that is parked on the grass of a football stadium. The image is taken at night. The parade float is decorated with crepe paper and alumnium. The float has a white staircase built on top of it. At the top of the staircase stands an African American female wearing a dark suit, hat, and holding a large bouquet of flowers. In the middle of the staircase stands another woman wearing a dark suit, hat, and corsage. At the bottom of the staircase sits another woman, also wearing a dark suit, hat, and corsage. On either side of the staircase stand two aluminum palm trees. On the right side of the float is a sign that reads, "Bethune-Cookman College." At the back of the float standing under the staircase is another woman who is wearing dark suit and white gloves. Her face is not visible. In the background can be seen the empty bleachers of a football stadium. On the back of the image is the stamp of the photographer's studio, which includes the address.
