- Abdu’l-Baha was the eldest son of Baha’u’llah. When Abdu’l-Baha passed away on 28 November 1921, He was eulogized as One who led humanity to the “Way of Truth,” as a “pillar of peace” and the embodiment of “glory and greatness.”
At the 42nd Annual Conference of the Association for Baha’i Studies (ABS) Conference held in Atlanta, USA, ‘Elevated & Meaningful’ host, Sarv Mithaqiyan interviews Dr. Joy DeGruy after she delivers a talk titled ‘Exploring the History of Racial Injustice in the United States as a Context to Understand the Baha’i Writings on Our Most Challenging Issue’.
Dr. DeGruy shares invaluable insights about the Baha’i Faith and our role in healing the wounds that have left most divided and sick in the United States as a result of how African Americans and people of color have been, and continue to be treated today.
