A black and white image of the lines of Bethune female students waiting to begin the funeral procession for Mary McLeod Bethune. The girls are partly obscured by a large branch of an oak tree in the center of the photograph. They are all wearing white dresses, though not the exact same dress. They are standing on the sidewalk leading up to Flora B. Curtis Hall, a dormitory. On the porch of the dormitory, there is a woman (probably a teacher) leaning against a pole with her arms crossed. In the yard at the left of the girls are two benches, one of which is occupied by two men who are talking. On the back of the image is written, ""1955 Female students waiting for the signal to proceed to White Hall for funeral of Mrs. Bethune."" as well as the yearbook stamp. The photographer of the image is unknown.
