A black and white photograph of a large group of school children and community residents gathered outside White Hall on Bethune-Cookman University's campus. White Hall was used to hold Sunday church meetings not only for the members of the school but the surrounding community. White Hall can be seen as the two-story building in the image, with a brick exterior and peaked roof. The columns and widow's peak can be seen in the center of the building, along with the sign, "White Hall." Trees flank both sides of the building. In the foreground of the image are the school children of Bethune-Cookman, which range in age from very young (in the first row), to teenaged, (in the rows behind the very young children). The children are African American boys and girls, and they are wearing school uniforms and heavy coats, indicating that it is fall or winter. Along the circle driveway, behind the students, are old-style cars. At the very left of the image is a family of four Caucasians, two men, and two women, who are standing apart from the students. The photographer of the image is unknown.


ca. 1924
