African Art* I thought this artist beautiful work could best represent the face of real life African(American) Edward Mozingo-An Angolan Warrior captured during the Portuguese-Angolan Colonial Wars (14th-20th). Edward Mozingo became one, if not the first, African indenture in Colonial English America to fight in court for his freedom, and win. His descendants are of multi-ethnic backgrounds. * art not a rendering of Edward Mozingo
