Horace Pippin was an African American painter born in Pennsylvania in 1888. As a child, he loved to draw pictures for his sisters, his classmates, his co-workers. Even during World War I, he filled his notebooks with drawings from the trenches…until he was shot. Witness Pippin’s incredible true story of triumph when not even an injured arm could keep him from his art.
