As part of its spring semester Geography Movie Night series, the Department of Geology and Geography will host a film screening and discussion of Pray the Devil Back to Hell on Thursday (April 17) at 6:30 p.m. in Brooks Hall, Room 202. Pray the Devil Back to Hell is the story of the Liberian women who took on the warlords and regime of dictator Charles Taylor in the midst of a brutal civil war, and won a once unimaginable peace for their shattered country in 2003. As the rebel noose tightened around the capital city of Monrovia, thousands of women – ordinary mothers, grandmothers, aunts and daughters, both Christian and Muslim – formed a thin but unshakeable line between the opposing forces. Gamma Theta Upsilon, Dr. Maria Perez, and Dr. Cynthia Gorman will assist as discussion moderators. Snacks will be provided.
