A black and white image of five African American males and one African American female posing on the steps of Thomas White Hall. The men are wearing three-piece suits, and the woman is wearing a coat jacket. On either side of them can be seen the columns of the entrance to White Hall. Behind them are the double-doors and a sign that reads, "Enter to Learn." The people in the photograph are identified by the following description on the back: "Faculty for Short Course - 'School for Rural Pastors,' meets annually [for] 2 weeks, 1949." Though the date has been stated to be 1949, the age of the photograph, the dress of the persons in the photograph, and the type of paper the image is printed on indicates the photo more likely was taken in the 1930s. The photographer of the image is unknown.
