Reflections III is a compilation of archival and contemporary footage that reflects on the history and the state of Black people in America. The work incorporated themes of racial capitalism, american violence, and anti-blackness and is a reflection of the uprisings in 2020 and an ode to the history of global uprisings working towards Black liberation.

Reflections is a series that uses improvisation and mystification to work with multiple dichotomies of the past and present.
