A black and white image of a group of fourteen African American men and women sitting around an elongated table for a meeting. They are sitting outside on a back porch of a building with white side planks and two large windows. From the ceiling hangs a ribbon decoration with a bow tied in the center. House plants can be seen on either side of the table. All persons present are smiling at the camera for the group photograph. The women are wearing dresses, and the men are wearing suits and ties. The table is covered in a white tablecloth, and there is a place setting of a plate, glass, fork, knife, spoon, and napkin at each place. Two lit candles sit on top of the table. Two pieces of art hang on the walls above the guests; the painting on the left cannot be identified but the painting on the right is of a ship on the ocean. The people in the photograph are unidentified. On the back of the photograph is written in pencil "Community leaders-- Westside Business and Professional Association meeting on campus, 1947."
