#BlackHistoryMonth2019
Harold Cromwell (1919-2008) is one of the most widely-recognized black Nova Scotian folk artists in Canada.

Harold Cromwell was a descendant of Joseph and Jane Cromwell, two black Loyalists and former American slaves who were offered freedom and safe passage to Canada in 1783 after the American Revolutionary War. This places Cromwell’s artistic practice within a highly specific cultural and regional context.

Cromwell began drawing with a ballpoint pen as an injured war veteran after the Second World War. He has described his art as being grounded in his personal experience of history. His distinctive artistic practice reflects the uniqueness of the black Nova Scotian experience through his use of memory, and storytelling.
