J. H. Dillard at Talladega College

The educational reformer J. H. Dillard, at center, is dressed in academic garb on the occasion of a talk he delivered on April 3, 1934, at Talladega College, a historically black college in Alabama. Buell Gallagher, the president of the college, writes above the photograph and thanks Dillard for his "kindly and gracious words … [that] have given wings of hope."
