"Valkyrie Mumbet is a triumphant and empowering encounter, a messenger of hope, and an icon of strength and resilience. This is the type of political art that teaches us what our professors never deemed worthy of their lectures. It is not a protest but a reparation. It is not divisive but connective. It doesn’t pretend that it will change the world today, but it certainly, in its own creative way, offers a blueprint through which we can better understand it and live in it, more fully with others."
