Event description
Film Screening & Discussion with special guests: Linda Midgett, 2-time Emmy-award winning writer & director, and Dr. Larycia Hawkins

About this Event

In December 2015, the political rhetoric against Muslims was escalating. Dr. Larycia Hawkins, an African-American political science professor at Wheaton College—a prestigious evangelical school outside of Chicago—wanted to show support for Muslim women. She posted a photo of herself in a hijab on Facebook. "I love my Muslim neighbor,” she wrote, “because s/he deserves love by virtue of her/his human dignity....we worship the Same God."

Within days, Wheaton’s Provost suspended Dr. Hawkins, eventually moving to terminate her tenure. Were the school’s actions a move to protect its Christian theological purity, as it insisted? Or was it, as some suggested, the result of racism and Islamophobia? “Same God,” directed by Wheaton alumna Linda Midgett, a two-time Emmy-award winning writer and director, explores the polarization taking place within the evangelical community over issues of race, Islam, religious freedom...and Donald Trump.
