The Bahá’í Faith in South Carolina and America’s Unfinished Business of Reconstruction – Part II: the Post Civil Rights Era Years

January 9 @ 1:15 pm - 2:15 pm CST

Visit Bahai.chat soon to register.

The Bahá’í community has deep roots in South Carolina—the birthplace of Reconstruction and home of the most significant response to the Bahá’í Faith so far by people of African descent in North America. What lessons might the Bahá’í experience in South Carolina hold today, when many Americans wonder if it is even possible to construct a just multiracial society and a new generation of Bahá’ís and their neighbors are working to build new models of community, prosperity, and identity?

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.
