Edmund Gaither, founding Director and Curator of the Museum of the National Center of Afro-American Artists, discusses Allan Crite, the “Dean of African American Artists in New England.” Allan Rohan Crite was born in North Plainfield, New Jersey and moved with his family to Boston as an infant. He began painting at age 14 and graduated from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. He later received his Bachelor of Arts degree from Harvard University. Crite devoted his life to documenting the African American experience, especially that of Boston neighborhoods, Lower Roxbury and the South End, and has been referred to as “Artist-Reporter of the African American Community.” His works are in many public and private collections including the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, the Boston Athenaeum, Harvard’s Fogg Art Museum, the Boston Public Library, the Smithsonian Institution, and the Museum of African American History.moreless
