Baha'i to host Race Unity Day

“The Oneness of Humanity” is the theme of this year's Race Unity Day celebrations set for 7 to 9 p.m. Sunday at the Edmond Baha'i Center, 321 E Campbell.

The musical program will feature an interfaith choir, which has prepared pieces for the celebration. This year's program also includes readings on the topic from talks given by Abdul-Baha, one of the four central figures of the Baha'i Faith and the only one who visited North America 100 years ago. Race unity was one of three main topics of Abdul-Baha's talks while in this country. Refreshments will be served.

Race Unity Day was established by the Baha'is of United States in 1957. It is observed, nationwide, on the second weekend in June and promotes racial harmony and the understanding of the essential unity of humankind.

For more information about the Race Unity Day Celebration or the Baha'i Faith, call 348-9992 or go to www.edmondbahai.org.
