A black and white image of Mary McLeod Bethune posing in her yard. This is reportedly the last known image of her. She is standing with her hands by her sides, and is wearing a white dress and white shoes. Behind her can be seen trees, and to the left, in the background, a white house (not hers). On the back of the image is written in pencil, "Mrs. Bethune in her yard, 1955." The photographer of the image is unknown.
