A black and white photograph of Mary McLeod Bethune with her arm around her great-grandchildren, Donald and Patricia Bethune. Mary McLeod is seated at a table and appears to be reading from a document laid out on a table. The document reads "Republic of Liberia," and has a pencil, a coaster, and a paper weight laying on top. The table has a chair underneath it. Patricia Bethune is standing next to Mary McLeod Bethune and is looking at her. She is wearing a dress and white shoes. To her left is her brother Donald Bethune, who is wearing overalls. Mary McLeod Bethune's hand can be seen wrapped around his arm. In the background can be seen a couch and table with books on it. On the back of the photograph is written, "Dr. Bethune and g. grands - Donald Bethune, Patricia Bethune, 1953-1954." The photographer of the image is unknown.
