A black and white image of four African men and women preparing ingredients during a cooking class at Bethune-Cookman University. The cooking class was offered as part of the vocational training program organized by the school. The students are working at two tables, under which are stacked plates and bowls. The man second from the left is Charles Francis, the director of dining. The female student on the left is measuring ingredients using a scale. The woman third from the left is mixing ingredients in a bowl, while the two men to the right of her prepare more ingredients. Placed on the table in front of the students are a variety of ingredients, such as "Gold Medal Enriched Flour," "Sauer's Baking Powder," and a plate of eggs. On the back of the photograph is the stamp of the photographer's studio.
