“Pray the Devil Back to Hell” is a documentary on the women of Liberia, Muslim and Christians, and how they came together to encourage peace in Liberia. These courageous women, with the help of fellow country woman Leymah Gbowee, wore all white garments and made it clear they wanted an end to the civil war in Liberia.
The different religions prayed together and silently protested in front of the Presidential Palace forcing a nonviolent resolution to the problem. “Inspiring, uplifting, and most of all motivating, it is a compelling testimony of how grassroots activism can alter the history of nations.” (praythedevilbacktohell.com). These ordinary women made extraordinary accomplishments by working together and promoting human life.
