After serving a prison sentence for breaking and entering, Purvis Young returned to Overtown, the Miami neighborhood of his youth. During his incarceration he had taught himself to paint, and in Overtown he began to chronicle almost obsessively its history and multicultural flavor, its streets and characters, its anecdotes of daily life, and its mythologies of survival. He soon transformed a rundown street, Goodbread Alley, into an outdoor museum filled with his paintings. In the ensuing four decades Purvis Young has become a nationally acclaimed artist whose impassioned style and keen eye are inseparable from his sense of place. A film by David Raccuglia and Shaun Conrad.
