Description
A color photograph of Sharon Green, also known as MC Sha-Rock. Sha-Rock wears a green sweatshirt with yellow letters that appears to read "I'm Sha-Rock an I can't be stopped." She is looking away from the camera with her arms held in front of her at waist-level, her hands appear to be mid-snap. An inscription on the back by Bill Adler identifies the subject, location, date and photographer.
