Pray the Devil Back to Hell is the extraordinary story of a band of Liberian women who came together to end a brutal civil war and bring peace to their shattered country. Armed only with white T-shirts and the courage of their convictions they staged a silent protest outside of the Presidential Palace and demanded a resolution to the country’s civil war. Their actions were a critical element in bringing about agreement during the stalled peace talks.
Pray the Devil Back to Hell reconstructs the events through interviews, archival footage and striking images of contemporary Liberia. Inspiring, uplifting, and most of all motivating, it is compelling testimony to the potential of women and of grassroots activism worldwide to alter the history of nations.
