Description
This black-and-white photograph depicts three men holding identical signs. Only the man in the middle is visible. He is wearing a camouflage jacket over a white shirt, and carries his sign over his left shoulder. The figure on the left is completely obscured by the sign and only part of a head, wearing a baseball cap, is visible on the right-hand figure. The signs read "BLACK CHRISTIAN / MEN OF / PRINCE GEORGE'S / COUNTY / AND VICINITY / STANDING UP FOR / CHRIST! JOHN 12:32." There is a cross three quarters of the way down the sign. In the background is a turret of the Smithsonian Castle.
