The Highwaymen Project is an upcoming feature film and multi-part documentary series about a group of self-taught African American artists in 1960s Jim Crow Florida. Using their talent and creativity, they managed to escape a life of hard labor by teaching themselves how to paint landscapes on left-over construction material. They captured the coasts and the rocky beaches of Florida, selling their works from their cars along U.S. Highway 1.
Join a conversation with producer and feature film director Todd Thompson, documentary series director Joy Kigin, Executive Producer and Civil Rights Attorney Benjamin Crump, and others closely connected with the project.
