The collection consists of individual and group portraits and candid shots of Payne; journalism colleagues; and prominant figures in American and African politics, the civil rights movement and entertainment. Also depicted are receptions, meetings, award ceremonies, political events, diplomatic missions and government hearings. The collection lacks personal photographs, her journalistic activities prior to the 1960s and after the mid-1970s, and her civil rights activities. Views of her international reporting are limited.
The collection includes a candid portrait of Payne on Easter Sunday (1963); receiving a certificate of life membership to the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People from Board of Directors chairman Bishop Stephen G.
