A black and white image of seven African American female students cooking in a laboratory at Bethune-Cookman University. The students are all wearing white school uniforms with ribbons around their necks, and white wraps around their heads. They are working at wooden tables that have a rack overhead, that are holding a row of jarred ingredients. On the far back wall to the left of the photograph can be faintly seen a large cabinet full of jars. The students are all at different stages of cooking. One student is pouring a liquid from a white pitcher, while another looks to be peeling vegetables. A chalkboard on the far wall has illegible writing on it. On the front of the image is written the number "37" but the significance of this number is unknown. On the back of the image is written "Cooking class, pre-1930." The photographer of the image is unknown.


ca. 1930
