Rock Of Ages - Ernie Barnes was born July 15, 1938. Endowed with an innate sensitivity, he knew early in life that he wanted to become an artist.

Black Woman! Queen of the fertile earth. Called slave, mammy, maid, concubine; yet she has remained mother, wife, sister, daughter and lover. Suffering much, she has done what had to be done to survive, to aid her mate; and still she has kept her dignity intact. Her share of the world's work may be limited but the fact that it's work makes it precious.
