Race Unity:
Implications for the Metropolis

by June Manning Thomas

published in Journal of Bahá'í Studies, 6:4, pages 23-42
Ottawa, ON: Association for Bahá'í Studies North America, 1995
About: This article briefly reviews some of the universal principles of unity which apply to the metropolis, whether that metropolis is Sarajevo, San Juan, or San Francisco. It then summarizes, for four distinct time periods during the twentieth century, some of the major ways in which racial disunity has been imprinted upon the metropolitan landscape in the United States. For each era, more social attention to specific Baha i teachings could have played a significant role in reducing fragmentation. The article ends by summarizing some of the major spiritual principles necessary to improve the fragmented metropolis, in the United States, and around the world.
