A black and white image of long-time Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority members, many now teachers, posing together around a candelabra which has lit candles. The woman third from the left is holding a piece of paper in one hand and a lit candle in the other. This appears to be a ceremony of some kind. They are standing in an unidentified room with plant wallpaper. At the right, students can be seen seated, watching the ceremony. The women are all wearing dresses. From left to right: D. Harris, Florence Small Roane, L. Smith, Mable Saxon, unknown, unknown, unknown, and Evelyn Sharpe.
