Rainbow-colored portrait of a bearded African-American man in glasses, suit and tie, shown seated in a chair; when the viewer stands to the left of hologram, he is shown in profile so that his right side is visible; his left hands are shown at the bottom in a slightly raised position; another black man's hand is seen on the far right side; as the viewer moves to the right, Barnes' position rotates so that he is looking straight out at the viewer; as the viewer moves left to right, he raises his hands and the hand on the right moves toward his hands, while a white woman's hand moves from the left side to his hands; when the viewer reaches the center, all 4 hands are clasped together at chest level in front of Barnes.

Please note that due to the unique challenges of holography as a medium, high-resolution digital images are not available for most items in the holography collection. Please contact us for more information on reproducing images of holograms.
