A clay brick that was once part of the structure of Bethune-Cookman University's White Hall. The brick is a standard solid style brick, with some irregularity in shape because of a chunk of mortar affixed to the top side. The brick is a faintly reddish color, with a gray tinge from mortar residue. All sides of the brick are weathered and worn. The bottom has the least amount of mortar residue.
