A color digital image of March on Washington participants, one of whom is taking a photograph.
Captured outdoors on the National Mall, a woman in a pink sweater holding a camera stands to the left while a group of three individuals, two men and a woman, stand together to the right. The woman with the camera holds it up to her face with both hands. She wears a pink sweater over a white shirt, a patterned skirt, and a white hat with pink ribbon. A handbag is held in the crook of her arm. The men both wear dark colored suits and one on the left is lighting a cigarette. The man in the middle holds hands with the second woman on the left, who wears a pale green dress with matching jacket. She has a March on Washington pinback button on her jacket and a black handbag over her forearm. Trees and cars are out of focus in the background.
