Global Human Rights Abuses and Racism in America

February 13 @ 1:15 pm - 2:30 pm CST

Dr. Layli Maparyan will facilitate a conversation with Dr. Payam Akhavan, Dr. Hoda Mahmoudi, Dr. Rashawn Ray. Together we’ll explore America’s 400 year history of racism through the lens of human rights abuses around the world and the worst authoritarian regimes that commit them. Are we jaded in the U.S.? Do we take our democracy for granted? Do we imagine we are somehow exempt from falling prey to the worst of possibilities as a nation if we continue to refuse to accept the reality of our having, for centuries, been steeped in white supremacist culture and anti-blackness? Might we be courting far greater disaster then we have imagined if we don’t make concerted efforts to root out this evil? How might we seize opportunities to move toward a more just and loving national community and stem the tide of increasing hatred and polarization?  Register here

About the Bahá’í Calendar and Holy Days

The Baha’i Faith has its own calendar, called the Badí’ Calendar. It is a solar calendar consisting of 19 months of 19 days each (361 days), plus “Intercalary Days” (four in ordinary years and five in leap years) to adjust the calendar to the solar year. The days and months are named after the attributes of God. The Nineteen Day Feast, the primary community gathering for Baha’is in each town and city, is held on the first day of each Baha’i month. Eleven Holy Days mark significant events in Baha’i history.

We would love to hear from you
