Champions of Oneness
Louis Gregory and his Shining Circle
Taking as its focus the years 1898–1921, Champions of Oneness portrays the lives of a handful of brilliant pioneers of race amity in the United States who gave everything they could to promote the principle of the oneness of humanity. The thread common among each of their lives was the Bahá'í Faith. Many of them had the fortune of meeting ‘Abdu’l-Bahá and would place His guidance and loving counsel at the center of their efforts. At great personal sacrifice, these early Bahá'ís traveled extensively to share the teachings of their new found Faith, and often were faced with severe challenges from those who were resistant to change.
