Award-Winning Film March 24


We want to invite you to join us for a screening of acclaimed movie Pray the Devil Back to Hell, in celebration of Women’s History Month, on March 24 at 7 pm, at the Peace Center office (3500 Patterson Avenue; entrance on Nansemond).

We chose this film to highlight the remarkable story of the Liberian women – Christian and Muslim – who came together to end a bloody civil war and bring peace to their shattered country.

Inspiring, uplifting, and most of all motivating, it is a compelling testimony of how nonviolent grassroots activism can alter the history of nations.

The film was winner of Best Documentary Feature at the Tribeca Film Festival in 2008 and 34 other awards and translated into over 20 different languages.

You’re invited to stay after the movie for a short thoughtful discussion.

Please RSVP (click here)!

This is the second in an ongoing series of film nights at the Peace Center. Following March 24th, the next film night will be April 28th.

The way the world is going to change is not from the powers that be, but by women who have their feet on the ground. It proves the theory that things will change when women mobilize and fight for what they know to be true.” –Eve Ensler
