A black and white image of a large group of school children and faculty sitting outside of White Hall, preparing for a Sunday Community meeting. White Hall is the bulding on the right, with the brick exterior and columned entranceway with the sign that reads, "White Hall." The building at the left of the image and partially obscured by trees is Curtis Hall, a dormitory for girls. The children and faculty are sitting on the lawn in front of White Hall, some on the ground and some in chairs. The other school children and faculty are sitting on the lawn behind the cul-de-sac at the left of the image, some on the ground and some in chairs. Most everyone is wearing white clothing. Three old-style cars are parked on the cul-de-sac. Mary McLeod Bethune can be seen in this photo by looking at the entrance to White Hall on the right, where there is a middle-aged woman standing in the road visible from the side, wearing a white dress with her arms at her sides. At the bottom of the image is written, "1930s, Curtis Hall (Dorm), White Hall." The photographer of the image is unknown.
