Post-Traumatic Slave Syndrome — The film is a recording of a presentation given by Dr. Joy DeGruy, author of “Post-Traumatic Slave Syndrome – America’s Legacy of Enduring Injury and Healing”.

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.
