Johnson, Theodore


Bethune-Cookman University


A black and white image of a parade float for a Homecoming parade at Bethune-Cookman University. The float is decorated in foil and has two crepe paper decorations at either end. On top of the float sit four African American women wearing white evening gowns and tiaras. They are waving at the photographer. The woman sitting at the back of the float is wearing a cape and is holding large bouquet, indicating she is the Homecoming queen. To the right of the float can barely be seen a line of other cars and floats, indicating a parade is about to begin. Behind the float is a wooden fence, and beyond that can be seen a small baseball stadium that is taller than the fence. On the back of the image is written "Homecoming parade float 1960s." There is also a stamp in blue ink that reads "Photo by Theodore Johnson, Bethune-Cookman College, Daytona Beach, Florida."
