A black and white image of a group of African American men and women studying in Harrison Rhodes Hall. At the left of the image, a male and female student look at a globe. Behind them, a woman stands while reading a book. At the right of the image, three students sitting at a desk talk, while a student at a desk in front of them reads and takes notes. On the back wall hangs a portrait of Abraham Lincoln. Also on the back wall are two magazine racks and newspaper racks. Based on the covers of the magazine racks, this image was dated to about 1947. The magazine titles on the racks are as follows, "Christian Century," "Popular Mechanics," "Vital Speeches," "Post," "The Nation," "Vogue," "Time," "Life," and "Seventeen." A headline on one of the newspapers reads, "Bush, Mobsters Freed." The photographer of the image is unknown.
