The Mardi Gras Baby Dolls' masking tradition fearlessly explore themes of identity, sexual liberation, and the freedom that Carnival lends in New Orleans amongst Black women. The group pulls a thread throughout time to reclaim culture, tradition, and freedom while challenging society's perception on how Black women are to act and exist in the world; they create an alternative social space.
