A black and white photo of two sets of doubles players playing on two tennis courts at Bethune-Cookman University. In the foreground of the image, two African American women play against two other African American women on the other side of the net. They are wearing white tennis outfits. In the background of the image can be seen two men on the far court, opposite side of the net, playing another team. At the left of the image, behind the near tennis player, is a set of bleachers where the outline of spectators can be seen. A chainlink fence wraps around the courts, and behind the fence old-style cars are parked. Beyond that can be seen a wooden fence, utility poles, and trees. On the back of the photo is the following note, "Tennis court in use at B-CC." The photographer of the image is unknown.


ca. 1930s or 1940s
