Bethune-Cookman College: A Rock in a Weary Land, ca. 1960

Date
1960 (circa)
Description
This is an excellent film on Bethune-Cookman College. It begins with student protests on other college campuses. The film then switches to the tranquil campus of Bethune-Cookman College in Daytona Beach, a predominately African-American college founded by the late Mary McLeod Bethune. There is an overview of the school and its individual departments, including interviews with Richard Moore (President), Dr. Rabie J. Gainous (Department of Science and Mathematics), Herine Banks (Dean of Women), and Edward Rodriquez (Administrator of the Mary Bethune Foundation). Students express their views and ambitions throughout the film. The apparent purpose for the production of this film was to obtain additional funding for the school.
