Helen receiving a shield from Zulus, 1952
This photograph from Durban, South Africa shows Zulu dancers saying good-bye to Helen, who is smiling from the backseat of a Dodge sedan. The dancers stand to the right of the car, dressed in animal skins and holding ceremonial sticks and shields. In fact, they gave one of their shields to Helen, as a farewell gift! This picture was taken in 1952.
