A black and white image of African American men learning radio repair during the vocational program offered by Bethune-Cookman University. In addition to teaching the students academics, students were also able to partake in vocational training that would assist them in securing a job after graduation. In this image, the men are working at work stations, and are performing various types of repair on radios. The men are dressed nicely in suit coats and trousers. A sign handing above the work area reads, "Mechanical Drawing and Communication." The photographer of the image is unknown.


ca. 1950s
