Family Movie Night
Movie Screening
The Disturbances chronicles the role Christian missionaries and Nigerian pastors played in 1966 during tribal atrocities. Missionaries of various denominations were working in the country when tribal killing followed military coups, and the missionaries were in a tough spot: As foreigners, they were to “stay out of politics,” but their Christianity and humanity sparked their actions in the conflict.
