A black and white image of the dedication of the "Log Cabin" recreation building on the campus of Bethune-Cookman University. The cabin was a student-use facility. The cabin can be seen at the left of the image, with a wide chimney in its middle and a wraparound porch. People can be seen sitting on the porch. Rows of chairs have been placed in the field in front of the cabin, in which spectators are seated. Four men are standing along the back row of the chairs in black suits, seating guests. Three people can be seen walking toward the chairs. At the right of the cabin are two unidentified buildings, one of which is entirely visible, and the other partially visible directly at the right of the image. African American students are standing in front of the partially visible building on steps, perhaps waiting for a procession to begin. Many trees can be seen in the background of the image, including palm trees. On the back of the image is written "1939." The image is printed on Velox paper. The photographer of the image is unknown.
