SORT BY Relevancy
Listen to The Gist of Freedom tonight as we talk with Jennifer Nelson a descendant of the historical black town, Boley OK.
One of the first nationally chartered black-owned banks, Farmers and Merchants Bank in Boley, Oklahoma, an all-black town successfully fended off “Pretty Boy” Floyd’s Bank Robber's Gang!
ON NOVEMBER 23, 1932, three members of Charles A. “Pretty Boy” Floyd’s gang made the worst mistake of their lives. They tried to rob the state’s first nationally chartered black-owned bank Farmers and Merchants Bank in Boley, Ok, an all-black town of proud-walking pioneers.
Up to that point, the Floyd gang had been robbing an average of a bank a week, usually without any resistance.
Gangster Floyd had warned his gang members against robbing the Boley bank because, the people of Boley all had guns, knew how to shoot them and weren't afraid to use them. Photos: Boley Council Members, Boley Bank, SEMINOLE NEGRO INDIAN SCOUTS _
They didn't heed Floyd's warning and Birdwell and Patterson, armed burst into the bank early that morning. announced they were robbing the bank and warned "don't pull no alarm."
The bank's Bookkeeper McCormick, saw the robbers enter. He slipped into the bank's vault, retrieved the rifle and aimed it at Birdwell who was scooping up cash.
At the same time, the Bank's president D.J. Turner, was on duty. He loved Boley and was determined to defend it.
When the alarm began wailing Birdwell hollered, "Did you pull that alarm?" "Sure I did," Turner answered.
Gangster Birdwell shot and Turner fell mortally wounded. McCormick, in turn, shot the second gang member, Birdwell to death.

TOPIC: IS IT EVER OK TO DATE YOUR BESTFRIENDS EX? WHY OR WHY NOT? WOULD YOU STILL BE FRIENDS?
“The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.” ~Mahatma Gandhi
and in visions of what could have been if I hadn’t been wronged. I blamed someone else for the life I didn’t have, and felt vindicated in the soul-sucking resentment I carried around from day to day.
I realize it makes less compelling writing to talk so generally, but these stories aren’t only mine to tell. They involve someone I love and have since forgiven. So perhaps the kindest thing I can do both for them and me is not retell the story, but instead create a new one: a story about letting go.
It’s a hard thing to do—to completely let go of something painful and forgive the person who may or may not have realized what they did. At my angriest point, I was convinced the person who hurt me did it with full intention and cruelty. I felt not a shred of compassion; just unadulterated pain and rage.
Then I realized, unless someone is a sociopath, they are rarely without feeling. And if they’ve hurt another person, even if their ego prevents them from admitting it, odds are they feel remorse on some level.
No one is purely bad, and everyone carries their own pain which influences the decisions they make. This doesn’t condone their thoughtless, insensitive, or selfish decisions, but it makes them easier to understand.
After all, we’ve all been thoughtless, insensitive, and selfish at times. Usually, we have good intentions.
And for the most part, we all do the best we can from day to day—even when we hurt someone; even when we’re too stubborn, ashamed, or in denial to admit the hurt we’ve caused.
So how do you forgive someone when every fiber of your being resists? How do you look at them lovingly when you still have the memory of their unloving action?
When we fear, when we doubt, when we worry, then our ego comes into play and our hearts get ambushed by fear, doubt and worry. In truth, all we have to do is to believe that we will be OK no matter what. Yet how do get to a place in life that we know how to be OK no matter what happens? What are the top ten things we can do in our daily lives that build us and grow us away from fear, doubt and worry which only stagnate our souls? Tune in and Join in on the Conversation Tuesday Morning at 5:30 AM, PST!
Delores was born & raised in the ghetto of Milwaukee, WI. At the age of 6 she was raped by a couple of the neighborhood boys, one of which she had a crush on. He then convinced her that that’s how you show love. Her sexual abuse continued she was 16 not only by the neighborhood boys but her brother and father as well. On her 16th birthday her father “sold” her to his best friend.
She was then sent to an all-girls school and when it was time to leave she had the choice to either go home or foster care so she chose foster care. Her foster family taught her what real love was and that sex did not equal love. Sadly, once she left she ended up in relationships with alcoholics and abusers.
She ended up getting married and had 2 daughters but the marriage ended badly and she went through a horrible custody battle while she was pregnant with her son. After going totally broke and now with a baby to care for she fell into her old ways and started working in exotic clubs. During this time her father introduced her to what soon became her pimp. Delores found herself close to death on many occasions, once by knife and another time by a gun in her face but God spared her life from being taken. Her change came when she found out her son was being sexually abused by her pimp’s nephew.
Her real change came when she realized she needed help for her and her son and at that time there wasn’t help for the issues they were dealing with. That is how OK Kids Corral was started. She met with challenges in getting it started and was ready to give up but she felt God’s prompting and didn’t give up.
Delores has an Associate in Arts degree for Accounting and earned her Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration.
