A black and white photograph of an African American female student, wearing a dress and a long cape, smiling and waving while sitting atop a float riding in a Homecoming parade. She is sitting on a throne, decorated with tin foil and crepe paper. Attached to the float at her right is a flag. The float is riding down the center of town. Behind her can be seen the exteriors of buildings, as well as company signs. One business sign reads, "Burhan's Business Machines," and another reads, "Olympian Hellenic Service." On the back of the photograph is the yearbook photo stamp. The photographer of the image is unknown.
