Thursday, November 3, 2022

7:30 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.

Page-Robinson Hall Room 409

Baha’i Fireside Discussion, Thursday, November 3, 7:30 PM - 9 PM

You are invited to contribute to an uplifting conversation that aims to help bring about unity and justice in a very divided world. This week’s topic will be “Race, Racism, and the Oneness of Humanity”.

How is the designation of race related to racism? How is racism best defined? How can racism be eradicated? What are the necessary steps toward the recognition that we are one human race? Why is it important to see all humans as part of a single family? How can such a recognition underly the solutions to human problems and endeavors?

Members of the Baha’i Faith (www.bahai.org) encourage and welcome people of all spiritual backgrounds (including none at all). Baha’is believe that all the world’s religions come from the same Source, and that all people can be welcomed into the activities of a worldwide grassroots community-building effort. Teachings include the equality of women and men, the harmony of science and religion, the elimination of prejudice of all kinds, racial and social justice, and the oneness of all humankind.

A quote from the Baha’i Writings:

“The earth is but one country, and mankind its citizens.” - Baha’u’llah

This event is facilitated by Paul Smith (paul_smith@brown.edu), Religious Life Affiliate for the Baha’i Faith at Brown. He is also available for individual consultation.
