Red, White, and Blue are the colors of the three great colonial powers – France, Britain, and The United States. Mammy on inset of the “Tricolor” (French Flag), yet she remains closer to her the African colors – green, yellow, and red.

Mammy is cries (red) for all the souls who are still not recognized for their contribution to France - including those Senegalese soldiers who fought and died for France.  Since it is frowned upon to be a critic of the French state from within, Mammy cries silently - her only outlet.  She remains voiceless and largely invisible, an outsider within.
