Our Community Coming Together to Create a Masterpiece.

As an emergency manager always changing perspective, thinking inside, outside, and out of the box entirely this photo was remade as a Gordon Parks photo in the 70's of the remaining surviving musicians.

I'd like to know of the remaining children alive in the photo that added character to original.  One even reminds me of Wesley Snipes.

This really would have been living history.
