Two paintings in Historic New England's exhibition "Artful Stories" reflect important aspects of the African American experience in New England. The New Hampshire–based artist Richard Haynes describes why he created his imaginary portrait of Cyrus Bruce, while scholar Rosalyn Delores Elder explores how Edward Mitchell Bannister transcended nineteenth-century attitudes about race to become a successful artist in Providence, Rhode Island. "Artful Stories" co-curators Nancy Carlisle and Peter Trippi welcome these guests and connect their insights to other aspects of the exhibition.
