Martin Gross, 1321 Crestview Dr., Holly Hill, Fla.


A black and white image of the Freshmen class of Bethune-Cookman University marching in a parade in Daytona Beach. The freshmen are African American men and women and are all wearing white shirts. Some of the freshmen are wearing sunglasses. One of the freshmen is carrying a sign which reads "We are Green Freshmen." Another student is carrying a sign that reads, "Freshman Class 1967." The group is marching down the middle of the street, lined on both sides with spectators. On the right side of the image the spectators are sitting on an elevated ledge. The spectators on the left side of the road are standing in front of a building. On the outside of the building is a telephone booth. In front of the freshman class can be seen two trumpet players from the marching band. Behind the freshmen, in the background of the image, can be seen a float with women standing on top in white dresses. On the left side across from this float, there is a sign that says, "Blacks." Behind that is a sign for a gas station that says "Phillips 66." The parade stretches off into the distance. On the back of the photograph is the stamp of the photographer, which includes the address and the phone number for the studio. There is also a yearbook stamp which reads, "Page no. 253, Pix. no. 5, Order 3718-68." Written in blue ink is, "#5, Homecoming Parade." Written in pencil is the date, 1968.
