Newport Gilded Age in Color

Join Keith Stokes in this video presentation as he delves into the history of black artists during the Gilded Age of Newport, Rhode Island. Presented in part by the Newport Art Museum, Stokes covers the African Heritage experience from 1865 to 1930 that occurred right in our very own backyards. The images that you see in this video have been collected by the Rhode Island Black Heritage Society, Newport Historical Society, state archives, and private families who have donated their efforts and time in digitizing these historic images and documents.

The video presentation is accessible indefinitely to the public for your viewing pleasure.
