The King Center hosts a pair of documentary screenings as part of its new Screen the Dream series, which uses the power of film to connect the timeless values and teachings of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. to the ongoing struggles of our time. Under the theme of Women in Protest, each film will explore the role of women in nonviolent social change today. The films will be immediately followed by a broader panel dialogue focusing on the full range of women's issues as they relate to King's legacy of nonviolence, with reputable change-makers from the community leading the discussion. Films include Budrus, about a Palestinian community organizer; and Pray the Devil Back to Hell, the remarkable story of the courageous Liberian women who came together to end a bloody civil war and bring peace to their shattered country.
