The black and white wires at the top are connected with a yellow connector. Should I leave this connection or separate them and match black to black and white to white?
Replacing Light Fixture on SPDT? Need Wiring Help!
The light in my kitchen is controlled by 2 different switches. One at either end of my kitchen. My research tells me it is a 3-way or single pole double throw (SPDT) circuit. Someone removed the original light and just left the open box so I cannot see how it was connected before.

Image 2: The light fixture has a black wire, a white wire and a ground wire
I was thinking I would connect the 2 black wires from the box to the black wire on the fixture, connect the 2 white wires from the box to the white wire in the fixture and connect the ground wire from the box to the ground wire on the fixture.
What is giving me pause is that the electrician who took my original light connected one of the black wires to the white wire when he left. Should I leave that connected and only connect the remaining black and white wires to the fixture?
Light fixture has black, white and ground wires. (ignore wires on right)
