Presentation by Jé Hooper for the Ethical Culture Society of Westchester on Sunday, May 23, 2021. The presentation explores Yinka Shonibare’s work entitled, “The Scramble for Africa,” a historic gathering of colonial statesmen laying claim to the continent and emphasizing the Western power complex. Yinka Shonibare is a British-Nigerian born in 1962, who is an artist based in the United Kingdom. His work examines the intersections of cultural identity expressed between the dichotomy of colonialism and post-colonialism within the contemporary context. Jé Exodus Hooper (they/them) teaches Theatre History, a current PhD candidate within the School of Interdisciplinary Arts and Ethical Humanist clergy. Both as performer and clergy within the Ethical Culture Movement and First Unitarian Society of Minneapolis, their ritual-based performance is grounded in the act of homiletics, decolonial Humanism and Black Intellectual Thought.
