A black and white photograph of the Miss PEM Club float, titled "Soul Explosion," riding in a Homecoming parade. On the side of the float along the bottom is the name of the float. In the center of the float, an African American woman is standing on steps. On the third step behind her is a box with the name of the club decorated on it. She is waving her arm in the air. At the front and back of the float are two cages, where two African American women are standing inside. They are each wearing boots and leopard-print outfits. In the background of the image are tall palm trees, and at the right, a group of spectators watch as the parade goes by. On the back of the photograph is the yearbook photo stamp. Also written on the back is, "Miss PEM club in a Homecoming parade 1972." The photographer of the image is unknown.
