Same God, a documentary of empathy, humanity and solidarity, follows the journey of professor, activist and Shawnee, Oklahoma native Dr. Larycia Hawkins. A black professor at Wheaton—a Christian school—Hawkins showed her support for her Muslim sisters by donning a hijab throughout Advent. Her actions initiated an international conversation about the nature of God and the possibilities for multifaith solidarity. The result was a legal separation from the college, a place that was once a stop on the Underground Railroad. The documentary, directed by Wheaton College alumna Linda Midgett, explores the polarization taking place within the evangelical community.
