Like other African countries grappling with their colonial past, Cameroon is struggling with its mission to retrieve important cultural artifacts stolen by Germany over 100 years ago. “Shambles of Haunted Africa,” a play written and directed by Tafor Ateh, explores this topic.


What a rare privilege to see a show as powerful as “Shambles of Haunted Africa.” I learned so much about the extent of colonial oppression and it’s far reaching consequences- particularly the deliberate disconnection from our sacred cultural artifacts as a result of colonial looting.
