Johnson, Theodore


Bethune-Cookman University


A black and white photograph of a Bethune-Cookman Wildcats game in progress. In the background of the image can be seen bleachers where spectators are sitting as well as the rafters of the gymnasium the game is being played in. In the foreground of the image is Bethune-Cookman player number 11, who has his back to the camera. In the center of the image is another Bethune-Cookman player, whose number is partially obscured. He is jumping in the air and appears to have just knocked the basketball (in midair) toward the basketball hoop. The team they are playing against, name unknown, is wearing the shorts with the stars on each side. On the back of the photograph is the stamp, "Photo by Theodore Johnson, Bethune-Cookman College, Daytona Beach, Florida."
