Pray the Devil Back to Hell

 

“Pray the Devil Back to Hell” tells the remarkable but little-known story of a small band of unarmed women who risked their lives to bring change to Liberia. Reconstructing the moment through interviews, archival footage and striking images of contemporary Liberia. Armed only with white T-shirts and the courage of their convictions, a coalition of Christian and Muslim women confronted cruelty and corruption, taking on Charles Taylor and the warlords and bringing peace to their country after decades of war. Their demonstrations brought about the exile of Charles Taylor and the election of Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, Africa’s first female head of state and mark the vanguard of a new wave of people taking control of their political destiny around the world.

Not so little known anymore. Great movie.
