Dial--79-year-old African-American artist from Alabama, hailed as "preternaurally gifted" by The New York Times. Southern African-American visual art is the lesser-known 'sibling' of jazz and the blues. Like the music, this improvisational form has influenced many now-famous white American artists. But unlike the musicians, the visual artists have not received recognition for their historical impact on American culture. This one-hour high-definition film investigates why.
