- Baha’is believe in the power of prayer and you’ll find Baha’is and their friends, throughout the world, getting together to pray. This is often referred to as a ‘devotional gathering’ or ‘devotional meeting’, and they happen in diverse settings, whether in cities or villages.
America’s Most Challenging Issue is a podcast produced by BahaiTeachings.org which features interviews with Baha’is in the United States who are actively building racial unity through building community. Hosted by Masud Olufani, this episode features choral director and soloist Van Gilmer, who has performed, arranged and conducted music for over sixty years. Born and raised in the Jim Crow south of Greensboro, North Carolina, Van’s early encounters with racism helped to shape his activism as a non-violent protestor during the student sit-in movement of the early 1960’s.
