Religion, race, and politics in America have been intertwined for as long as the country has existed. In this empowering piece, director Jeanine Isabel Butler follows a bold group of Oklahomans working to bring change to their communities. These religious leaders from the Bible Belt refuse to accept that religion is meant only for a very specific group and are more interested in saving people from an earthly hell than the otherworldly one. This film questions all that we think we know about the Christian heartland and compels audiences to engage in new and difficult conversations to impact change. Discussion with director Jeanine Isabel Butler, co-producer Catherine Lynn Butler, Larycia Hawkins (UVA), and Sabrina Dent (Freedom Forum Institute), moderated by Kurtis Schaeffer (Religion, Race & Democracy Lab)
