Spoken Softly with Mama. 1997
Multi-media installation

Afro-Cuban artist Maria Magdalena Campos-Pons' Spoken Softly with Mama, part of a series of works entitled History of People Who Were Not Heroes, explores a plethora of issues to Diaspora, expatriation, gender, and race. In this multi-media installation, she uses a personal narrative to explore ways in which history and tradition are passed from generation to generation and collective memory is preserved in everyday objects.
