A color photograph of MC Lyte in her dressing room, ca. 1995. Lyte is sitting next to a lighted mirror and looks towards the camera with her left arm resting on the counter.

The print is signed and dated on the back by Michael Benabib and an inscription by Bill Adler identifies the subject and date of capture.
