Summary: An interview of Humbert Howard conducted 1988 Oct. 26, by Marina Pacini for the Archives of American Art, at the artist's home in Philadelphia, Pa.
Howard speaks of his education; his introduction to art; the importance of his studies at the Barnes Foundation; his work as the art director of the Pyramid Club, a black social club in Philadelphia, where he was in charge of selecting the works for the annual exhibitions that featured the work of both New York and Philadelphia artists; and the exhibiting opportunities available to black artists in Philadelphia. Howard's age at the time of the interview prevented him from recalling his career in much detail.
