200 Pounds of Rice confronts racism within the Korean community from the point of view of Davenport's mother. During the performance, audio of her mother speaking played. Davenport's participation and labor connect her to her mother while attempting to share the weight that she has carried for their family. Davenport presents her mother’s words as testimony to her experience and proof of a deeply racist society.
