This image depicts the Reverend Frederick Douglass Kirkpatrick in Resurrection City playing the guitar with another man, while a woman standing between them claps her hands. Kirkpatrick, on the right, wears a dark denim jacket over a button down shirt and dark pants. He holds a guitar with a strap over his left shoulder and strums with his right hand. Facing opposite him is a man in a light colored short sleeve shirt and dark trousers, also holding a guitar. It is slung over his left shoulder as he strums with his right hand. Standing between the two men, facing the viewer, is a woman in a light colored sweatshirt and light pants. Her sweatshirt has large letters that read "MILWAUK.../N.A.A.C..../YOUTH COUNCIL." She wears a large button on her right shoulder that reads "FREEDOM." Crowds of onlookers stand in the background. The Washington Monument can be seen in the distance.
