The Florida Highwaymen were a small group of self-taught African American artists who created colorful landscape paintings that they sold out of their cars along Florida’s coastal highways from the 1950s-1980s. Dr. Amanda Koontz Anthony (Sociology) traveled these same highways in search of their story and situates her findings within a larger context of personal identity and what she refers to as “radicalized authentication.”
