Gary has been instrumental in telling the Highwaymen story.  His first book on the subject, "The Highwaymen: Florida's African American landscape painters" published in 2001 was followed by "Harold Newton: The Original Highwayman" and "The Highwaymen Murals: Al Black's Concrete Dreams."  These books represent the most complete and factual account of the famed group of artists.  I have attended Mr Monroe's lectures in the past and highly recomend them.  GL

I heard a story on the radio about these painters; not only is the art great, but the story itself is wonderful. I have seen some fantastic work by these great artists – the picture here is a perfect example!
