Girls Education International to host film, Pray the Devil Back to Hell

On September 21, in conjunction with the African Student Association, Girls Education International is showing the film, Pray the Devil Back to Hell, at the Old Main Chapel, 1202 University Avenue, University of Colorado, Boulder. Doors open at 5 p.m., and the show starts at 7 p.m. $10 per ticket, with $5 discount for students. All proceeds will benefit the organization’s scholarship program currently supporting 47 under-privileged girls in Liberia.

Pray the Devil Back to Hell chronicles the story of the thousands of courageous Muslim and Christian Liberian women who came together to end a bloody civil war and bring peace to their shattered country. Armed only with white T-shirts and the courage of their convictions, they took on the warlords and nonviolently forced a resolution 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.
