This black and white image is of a large group of African American and Caucasian men and women posing for a group photograph on the steps of Harrison Rhodes Hall at the front of the building. Two large windows and the entrance can be seen behind the group. The women are all dressed in different styles of dress outfits, such as bell bottoms, skirts, long overcoats, dress shoes, and jewelry. They are wearing their hair long in the style of the 1970s. Some of the women are wearing regular eyeglasses, while some are wearing sunglasses. The women standing in the front row can be seen holding various types of handbags and purses. The men are also wearing different types of dress, such as bell bottoms and turtleneck sweaters. They are wearing their hair also in the style of the 1970s. Two prominent Bethune-Cookman personnel are present: Richard V. Moore is the first person in the first row at the right of the image. He is standing with his left arm behind his back and is wearing a three-button suit and horn-rimmed glasses. Florence Roane is the twelfth person in the first row standing from the left. She is wearing a knee-length flannel poncho and eyeglasses, and has her left hand on the arm of the person to her right. The photographer of the image is unknown.
