    Larycia Hawkins and Linda Midgett: Embodied Solidarity and #SameGodFilm

    Larycia Hawkins and Linda Midgett: Embodied Solidarity and #SameGodFilm

    Advent is about God's embodied solidarity with humanity. In December 2015 Dr. Larycia Hawkins, political science prof at Wheaton College in Illinois placed a hijab on her head, took a picture and posted a message on Facebook in solidarity with Muslim women who were being targeted and forced to take off their hijabs in public spaces within democracies around the world. Standing in embodied solidarity with Muslim women as her Advent practice, Dr. Hawkins lost her job and became the target of white patriarchal evangelicalism. Join host, Lisa Sharon Harper, as she examines the intersectional oppressions of race, gender and religion with Dr. Hawkins and the Emmy Award Winning filmmaker who documented Hawkins's story, Linda Midgett, director of "Same God."

    #1619FamilyFaithFuture

    2019 marked the 400th year since Africans first stepped foot on North American shores. Antony and Isabela (their given slave names) were brought from Angola aboard a Portuguese slave ship bound for Mexico. The White Lion, an English warship, pirated the Portuguese ship and stole its human cargo. The first “20 and odd” Africans brought to this land in chains stepped off the White Lion in the year of our Lord 1619.  Antony and Isabela were among them. They were traded for food by residents of Jamestown. Bought by Captain Tucker, they  eventually found each other and fell in love. They bore the very first African-American in 1624–William Tucker. 
    This month join host, Lisa Sharon Harper, and her guests Vincent Tucker (Direct descent of Antony and Isabela) and Angelique Walker-Smith (Pan-African and Orthodox Church Engagement, Bread for the World). Learn about life for the first African Americans and consider the path toward America’s healing over the next 400 years.
