She is smoking a cigarette. In March 1967 Williams ran unsuccessfully for a position on the Montgomery City Democratic Executive Committee. One of the images taken at this time was used in the campaign advertisement that appeared on page 5 of The Southern Courier for March 18-19, 1967. The issue is available online (not on the ADAH website):
