The Interfaith Fellowship of Augusta and the Islamic Society of Augusta
In partnership with
CSRA Women’s Interfaith Network, Unitarian Universalist Church of Augusta, and Aiken Interfaith Partners.
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 she 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.
“Same God,” directed by Wheaton alumna Linda Midgett, follows the journey of Dr. Hawkins while exploring the polarization taking place within the evangelical community over issues of race, Islam, religious freedom.
