Special Screening: PRAY THE DEVIL BACK TO HELL

One night only! Wednesday, February 27, 7pm

Presented in collaboration with the The Werner Institute. A panel discussion will follow the film, featuring: Jackie Font-Guzman, The Werner Institute; Palma Strand, Creighton University School of Law; and Jay Carney, Creighton University Department of Theology

PRAY THE DEVIL BACK TO HELL chronicles the remarkable story of the courageous Liberian women who came together to end a bloody civil war and bring peace to their shattered country.

Thousands of women — ordinary mothers, grandmothers, aunts and daughters, both Christian and Muslim — came together to pray for peace and then staged a silent protest outside of the Presidential Palace. Armed only with white T-shirts and the courage of their convictions, they demanded a resolution to the country’s civil war. Their actions were a critical element in bringing about a agreement during the stalled peace talks.

A story of sacrifice, unity and transcendence, PRAY THE DEVIL BACK TO HELL honors the strength and perseverance of the women of Liberia. Inspiring, uplifting, and most of all motivating, it is a compelling testimony of how grassroots activism can alter the history of nations.
