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 photographic slide depicts Reverend Kirkpatrick strumming a guitar. Wearing a dark blue button down shirt over a tan shirt, he carries the guitar on a strap over his left shoulder. He is surrounded by a group of men who all gaze at sheets of paper held in their hands. These sheets of paper have text and images on them. There are trees in the background. With the transparency was a protective plastic sleeve with a sticker on the lower left corner with both handwrittten and stamped text.
