A black and white image of the male and female African American students at Bethune-Cookman University standing in a striaght line, posed in front of McLeod Hospital on campus. They are all wearing white dress or suits, and are preparing to attend a Sunday community meeting. Six students are kneeling in front of the larger group; their dress is slightly different. Tall trees can be seen behind them, from which hangs Spanish moss. McLeod Hospital is the two story photograph in the building. An American flag hangs from the front porch. On the back of the image is written, "1930 Students ready for Sunday afternoon community meeting," as well as the stamp of the photographer's studio.
