This slide is part of a collection of 35mm slides encapsulating Robert Houston's full portfolio of images related to the Poor People's Campaign and the antipoverty protest camp on the National Mall. Known as "Resurrection City," the camp lasted for six weeks in the spring of 1968.
This color slide depicts a young man wearing multiple necklaces, shown from the waist up. He stands outdoors, gazing direly at the viewer. He wears a dark jacket with vertical stripes of white, red, ad grey. Under the jacket he wears a grey and brown striped shirt. Around his neck is a white apron, a necklace made of large tortoise-shell colored rings, and a thick gold chain with a large wooden pendant. Trees and a parked tuck are visible in the background. The slide mount has text on the reverse that reads "processed by/ rogers color lab corp. / new york."
