Drawn from a black and white photo, and painted with oil pastels. We find a group of African American Men, standing in front of the Farmers & Merchants Bank in Boley, Oklahoma in 1932. The men are grieving the death of the bank President after he was killed following a failed bank robbery attempt by the legendary Pretty Boy Floyd Gang.
