Sometimes we need to walk out of our comfort zones. Based on the best-selling book and the movie of the equivalent name, the «Same Kind of Different As Me,» invites people into an improbable friendship between international art dealer Ron Hall and a homeless man named Denver Moore. Moore, a wandering drifter, was raised under plantation-style slavery in Louisiana in the 1960s. He finally escaped the grips of slavery and hopped a train to Dallas, Texas where he strolled the streets for 18 years.
Despite being free in the physical sense, Moore was bound to a grave past until he met Hall’s wife Deborah at a homeless shelter. Yet, this was a short encounter as Deborah died of liver cancer. She challenged her husband to befriend Moore before her passing, which wasn’t an effortless commitment as Hall was coming from a realm of Armani suits and high-brow associations. Reaching out to someone unlike him was difficult and inconvenient.
Nonetheless, he did as his wife beseeched. After the emotional ups and downs of getting to know each other, both Moore and Hall commenced on a journey that would help them conclude you can always love another human being, regardless of their class and history. I used to spend a lotta time worryin’ that I was different from other people. But I found out everybody’s different—the same kind of different as me,» said Moore. Yes, we all are complex, but by overcoming the barriers of division, people can experience solidarity and love.
