“The Disturbances” Documentary Film To Debut

Sunday, May 7, 6:00 p.m., Social Hall

On Sunday, May 7, you are invited to view the documentary film, The Disturbances. This film is based on the 1966 genocide in Nigeria and shows what genocide looked like throughout history (including US history) and how prevalent it is even today.

 

The tensions leading to the 1966 genocide began when Igbo tribe members from southern Nigeria migrated to the north in response to jobs created by economic development in the new nation. During the genocide that ended with as many as 50,000 Igbo tribe-members murdered, a group of Christian missionaries risked their lives to save others. Among them were Bill and Audrey Cowley and their daughters, Carol and Karen (Bergquist). While the events were spoken of little throughout the years, the Cowleys and others have recently begun to share their memories of the atrocities. They and other missionaries who assisted the targeted Nigerians are featured in the documentary.

 

When the Cowleys retired from the mission field, Bill began a 16- year tenure as a member of Samford’s religion and speech faculties. Each year, the Religion Department gives an award to an outstanding student in his name. Please don’t miss this opportunity to learn about the history of genocide in Nigeria told by the brave men and women who served and sacrificed in Jesus’ name.
