A black and white image of a large group of African American students posing in front of their winning parade float. Behind the group of students can be seen the brick edifice of White Hall, the entryway of which is partially visible at the right of the photograph. A fire escape can be seen attached to the left of the building. A tall tree stands in front of the building. In the background of the image to the left of White Hall is a small white house with a chimney and front porch. In front of the house can be seen two girls sitting on a park bench talking. The group of students is posing in front of their float, which is partially obscured, but appears to be a car decorated in tissue paper. A butterly-shaped decoration is attached to the front of the car. All of the girls are wearing school uniforms, which consist of long-sleeved white shirts, ribbons around their necks, and dark skirts. The men are also wearing white shirts and bowties. At the left of the image, two girls are holding instruments, one a saxophone, the other a trumpet. A boy to the right of them is wearing a hat on his head that partially reads "-UNE-C," indicating Bethune-Cookman. Toward the middle of the photograph is a man sitting on his knees. He is wearing a striped beanie cap on his head, but is wearing a sweatshirt with a letter "B" insignia. In the lower right-hand corner of the image is a girl who is holding a clarinet in her hands, and she is wearing a headband that reads "B.C.C." Standing behind her are two girls who are holding megaphones. On the back of the image is written, "The winning float in the Homecoming parage in the early days at B.C.C. At that time it was Daytona Normal and Industrial Institute (before 1923)." The photographer of the image is unknown.
