Description: Photograph of a large standing row of men and women, stopping to take a group picture during the Service to Youth Award Program, an event providing scholarships to graduating seniors; presumably, at the high school level. Starting tenth from the right, the six young men and women huddled together in the middle were all award recipients. The only identified member, however, has been D'Shandra Walker, who stands last among the six in a floral print dress and glasses. On each side of the six are presenters and attending audience members. Behind them, a woman appears to be giving a speech from a wooden podium that has been set atop an elevated platform.

[Speakers and Boy with Television at Salute to Youth Awards Program]

Date: 1992
Creator: Links, Inc. San Antonio Chapter.
Description: Photograph of an unidentified group of people in an auditorium during the Salute to Youth Awards Program, an event awarding cash scholarships to Martin Luther King Middle School students. The photograph was taken candidly, capturing unprepared speakers and disengaged stares. One woman is behind a podium, in the middle of speaking. Behind her, a woman in a colorful red and blue dress holds a piece of paper, perhaps packing material for the box below her out of which a television has been pulled out of. The television set, no bigger than two or three feet on either side, is being held by a young boy in a black shirt and dark turquoise tie. An exposed calf of a woman in capri-style pants is on the far right, but otherwise, she has mostly been cropped out of the photograph. On the back of the photograph, hand-written notations have been made naming some of those pictured, but it is difficult to read with certainty.

Description: Photograph of two unidentified female audience members of the 30th Annual Convention of the Arts, sitting a short distance away from a male speaker who stands behind a wooden podium. A painting of three African-American women holding hands, matted and framed, has been reclined against the front part of the podium. The woman on the left wears a fuchsia jacket. Her companion, on the right, wears a jacket in green. The camera's bright flash has made most of the other details in the photograph hard to see.
