Clementine Hunter (December 27, 1886 - January 1, 1988) was a self-taught African American folk artist from the Cane River region in Louisiana.  She worked as a farm hand, never learning to read or write. She began painting in her fifties, using brushes and paints left by an artist who visited Melrose Plantation, where she lived and worked. Hunter's artwork depicted plantation life in the early 20th century, documenting a bygone era.  #TodayInBlackHistory
