Saturday, April 23rd, 4:00 - 5:30 pm at  Rankin Chapel (map), Howard University. 

Please join the Baha'i community of the greater DC metropolitan area to commemorate 'Abdu'l-Baha’s historic visit to Rankin Chapel, Howard University and His address on Race Unity - the most vital and challenging issue facing America. More details to follow.

In 1912, the country was torn with racial division, and “separate but equal” was the highest level of interracial relations to which the nation aspired. ‘Abdu’l-Bahá challenged America to go beyond tolerance, to embrace diversity completely, and to demolish racial barriers in law, education and even marriage.
