Abdu’l-Bahá’s journey across America
Abdu'l-Bahá, the son of the founder of the Bahá'í Faith, called on America to become a land of spiritual distinction and leadership in establishing the oneness of humanity.
In 1912, He traveled from coast to coast across America after a lifetime of imprisonment and persecution in the Middle East.
He gave a powerful vision of America’s spiritual destiny — to lead the way in establishing the oneness of humanity. He set out the spiritual requisites for attaining this destiny, including:
- unity among the races
- equality between women and men
- a balance of material and spiritual progress
