A black and white image of an African American female student pausing outside the wrought-iron fence that surrounds the grave of Mary McLeod Bethune. The student is dressed in a coat, pants, and boots, and is holding her school books in her hands. Surrounding the headstone are three wreaths set up on metal poles. The headstone reads, "She has given her best, that others may live a more abundant life." Two benches can also be seen inside the gate. A bell hangs from an iron stand near her headstone. In the background of the photograph are campus buildings and utility poles. Trees can also be seen in the image. The photographer of the image is unknown.
