Part of a Complete Breakfast, 2014-2015

2-channel video installation (01:50 / 01.53)


Using imagery from iconic 1939 film Gone with the Wind, other appropriated material, and original footage, this video installation explores and critiques the Mammy character found on the Aunt Jemima products and the Rastmus character on Creme of Wheat. It challenges the viewer to be aware of the origins of these figures and their blatant link to racism, slavery, servitude and anti-Blackness and to question why the figures remain on these products.
