When Warriors Heal: Works by Darnell Chambers (Airborne Sun)
To become a warrior is my highest achievement. The word itself seems to convey magical powers.
Are there no warriors around today? This is asked in Afrika whenever there is work requiring strength and courage. This idea is examined by artist Airborne Sun in his new exhibit When Warriors Heal. A warrior must be strong, righteous, courageous, confident, wise, and concerned. The warrior is the safeguard of community. Warriors are reputed to be afraid of nothing short of God Almighty.
