The RBM series are written and performed by Ezili Dantò

Documenting the often tragic journey of Haitians in the US and abroad for human justice, the monologues cover Vodun cosmology, Haitian history, culture and US humanitarian imperialism in Haiti. It's a musical memoir full of coming of age stories of a woman raised African-American-Haitian in the US, who returns to her parents' homeland and cannot undo the U-turn. The work testifies to the tragic plight of the Black nation of Haitians surviving within a hostile American Mediterranean.
