Women, War, & Peace: Pray the Devil Back to Hell
- Thursday, October 4
- 12:00 noon
- ACB 240
PBS’s bold miniseries, Women, War, & Peace challenges conventional wisdom that war and peace are men’s domain. This segment 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 ordinary women united to pray for peace then staged a silent protest outside the Presidential Palace. Armed with only white t-shirts and the courage of their convictions, they demanded a resolution to the country’s civil war. A story of sacrifice, unity, and transcendence, Pray the Devil Back to Hell honors the strength and perseverance of the women of Liberia.
Free pizza will be provided!
