Pray the Devil Back to Hell screening and lecture with Dr. Amos Sawyer

The Saltman Center for Conflict Resolution at the UNLV Boyd School of Law presents a Peace in the Desert film screening and panel discussion of the film Pray the Devil Back to Hell. Special guest commentary will be provided by Dr. Amos Sawyer, former President of Liberia.

Pray the Devil Back to Hell is the gripping account of a group of brave and visionary women who demanded peace for Liberia, a nation torn to shreds by a decades-old civil war. The women's historic yet unsung achievement finds voice in a narrative that intersperses contemporary interviews, archival images, and scenes of present-day Liberia together to recount the experiences and memories of the women who were instrumental in bringing lasting peace to their country.

The event will be followed by a reception.
