Description

Beyond our race, ethnicity, nationality, and even gender, is there a higher identity that unites us all? If so, is the path to eradicating racism as much a spiritual one as it is social or legal?

Event Details

Concepts like “colorblindness” and “post-racial” seem to be everywhere today, but the struggles and repercussions of discrimination, of prejudice, and of racism still exist. What does it mean for us as individuals and as communities to strive for unity and justice in this landscape? Are we missing the chance to achieve real progress without taking into account the spiritual dimensions of human identity in our discussions on race?
Come join a different kind of conversation – one that welcomes every perspective in a search for the truths that unite us all – as we discuss the spiritual perspective offered by the Bahá’i Teachings on the eradication of racism. Join us for a lively discussion as we explore the role of spirituality in eliminating prejudices and in recognizing and establishing the oneness of all.  

“God is the Shepherd of all and we are His flock. There are not many races. There is only one race.”   – Bahá’i Teachings
