What I liked

The circular storytelling of the piece was captivating. Rooting the story of Margaret Garner in Mami Wata felt like stitches threading together the diaspora in such an awe-inspiring way. I am looking forward to a more lengthy piece from this artist and the broadening of this work.

What I didn't like


My overall impression

Black Woman in Deep Water is such an incredible work. I felt blessed by the words and inspired by the message. It is such a poignant piece grounded in truth and Makena offered the audience a vivid and emotional delivery every time. I was honored to bear witness to it as she embodied and depicted the legacy of Margaret Garner.
