Reflections on the Pupil of the Eye Movement

July 10 @ 1:15 pm - 2:30 pm CDT

Join us for a conversation with poet, racial justice activist and author Barbara Talley. In this program she will shrae insight as to why Baha’u’llah refers to Black people as the pupil of the eye and why it should matter to all of us as we strive to establish oneness on the planet.
Barbara Talley has been working in diversity, conflict resolution, effective communications, leadership, and race unity for over forty years and has continuously offered programs professionally and in her community. In addition to training, she is a member of the National Speakers Association, a motivational speaker, and an author of six books. Her primary focus over the past two years has been in uplifting people of color, especially people of African descent.

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
