María Magdalena Campos-Pons collaborates with Kamaal Malak to reprise A Mother’s River of Tears, an immersive performance that debuted at the opening of María Magdalena Campos-Pons: Behold at the Brooklyn Museum in 2023.

Drawing on ancestral rituals of the Yoruba people, the performance is a manifestation of many healing themes mirrored in Behold. It poetically commemorates the lives of Black men and women whose journeys were interrupted as result of historical fractures in the delivery of justice.
