The Warrior, 16″ x 20″ oil on linen canvas board, framed by the artist.
A young African American celebrates his Gullah Geechee heritage. We sense a burning determination for both freedom and identity. He is young and full of potential, eager to make his mark on society. The glow of freedom radiates from within; he longs to be free indeed. Some will see an “angry young black man” when they look at this painting, which is a convenient trope for the racist. Those who blame the problem of race on the oppressed ARE the problem with race. African Americans are still grossly under represented in the leadership of this country; they remain the victims of institutional racism. It is far too easy to condemn the oppressed for their actions. But the truth, the Elephant in the room, is with those in control. Until we have equal representation, where laws and policies reflect true equality and full equity, racism will continue to be the aching sore that tears at the heart of every American.
