Born into slavery in 1853, Bill Traylor witnessed profound social and political change during his life - spanning slavery, Reconstruction, Jim Crow segregation, and the Great Migration. In his late 80s, despite living homeless, he poured this wealth of experience and emotion into more than 1,000 pieces of art and would eventually become one of the most celebrated American, self-taught artists. Balancing interviews with Traylor's family, visual art, and music, this film is a must-see for any art lover.
