Champions of Oneness tells the story of outstanding Bahai teachers during the early years of the twentieth century 1898-1911. Nearly all of them had the fortune of meeting, at one time or another, Abdul-Baha, the son of Bahaullah. Their meetings with Abdul-Baha would inspire them to teach the Faith of Bahaullah in the United States. This act of service often led them to encounter great suffering at the hands of those who resisted change and wanted the old way of doing things to remain the same. Racism, sexism, and economic inequality were only a few of the hardships these brave men and women had to suffer. Prominent among them was Louis Gregory, who embodied the suffering and triumphs that African Americans experienced during this time, and a group of outstanding Bahai'shis shining circlewho accompanied him in righting the wrongs of this period. This book is their storya story of suffering as well as triumph in the face of overwhelming odds. As racial prejudice, gender prejudice, and economic hardship continue to plague the United States, it is hoped that the biographies of these brave men and women will inspire Americans today to champion justice and equality in their daily lives.
