About the Event

'Me-search, Research, and We-search': Going from Self-care to Culture Care.  Join The Faith Space in the study of self is a journey towards 'aliveness'. It is a real exploration of one's own humanity that brings an individual into collective wellness and well-being-- a community agreement reminds 'I am' enough.

Jé Exodus Hooper is a Ph.D Interdisciplinary Arts candidate at Ohio University and clergy-leader within the Ethical Culture Movement.  Based in the Mid-Atlantic region, his work as creative-clergy and a performance-scholar is focused in decolonizing Humanism, homiletics, and Black Intellectual Thought.  His love for performative rhetoric involves a decolonized aesthetic of Black homiletic folk-talk-- one of imagination as responsive reasoning. His word-working emphasizes human freedom and interconnectedness through embodiment, intuition, creativity, and improvisation. His folx-talk emerges into a love language that aids congregational practice of culture care for empowering community-life.   

His most recent Facebook Live and IGTV production, Keep Liv'n, emphasizes the importance of cultural care and self-care. He has also created a film, “Humanitas: A Conscious Coloring of Kindness”, based on the relationship of W.E.B. DuBois and Felix Adler, was sponsored and funded by American Ethical Union’s Mossler Fellowship that debuted with approximately 400 attendees.  Other works include “Moving Upon the Face of the Deep,” featuring Dr. Cornel West; “The Black Sacred Communion,” and a collaboration with his life partner, storäe michele, entitled, [the listening heart], which premiere drew over 300 member audience.   

These kinds of transdisciplinary theory as practice consoles and agitates communities in re-imagining and re-claiming narratives that honor the inherited worth and dignity within all people-- a love-work that Jé is committed to!
