Evening Program

FILM SCREENING: Same God

followed by Q&A with Dr. Larycia Hawkins & director Linda Midgett

In December 2015, Dr. Larycia Hawkins—a professor at an evangelical college—posted a photo of herself wearing a hijab on Facebook, accompanied by these words: "I love my Muslim neighbor because s/he deserves love by virtue of her/his human dignity….we worship the same God." The controversy over her actions—and her employer's response to them—exposed deep rifts among Christians over race, Islam, religious freedom, and politics.

Join us for a screening of the acclaimed 2018 film Same God, which explores the firestorm that erupted around these events and traces its effects on Dr. Hawkins's life. The film will be followed by a discussion with Dr. Hawkins and filmmaker Linda Midgett.

Open to the public.
