During the civil rights movement, Winfred Rembert (1945-2021) was arrested without charge, survived a lynching at the hands of law enforcement, and spent seven years on chain gangs. Years later, at the age of 51 and with the encouragement of his wife Patsy, Rembert produced scenes from his youth on leather canvases, using the tooling and dyeing skills he learned in prison, and had his first one-man show in 2010. Presenting 60 examples of his stunning folk art in color, this posthumous memoir—the result of interviews with philosophy professor Erin Kelly—earned a Pulitzer Prize for its searing look at racism and for its hopeful message of redemption through art. A member of the prize committee noted, "His life's story, and the creative, compelling way it unfolded, will live with me forever, and the Pulitzer for this work will serve as a reminder of the magnificence and artistic genius that can emanate from racism and incarceration."
