Watch now: The Early Years of the Guardianship, with Richard Hollinger
person

Carol Mansour learned about the Bahá’í Faith while working as a reporter and anchor in local television news. Having grown up in a Pentecostal congregation that was all Black, she was intrigued that a religion considered the elimination of racial prejudice as a spiritual imperative.  She has taken to heart the Guardian’s admonition that communities consider it their “first and inescapable obligation to nurture, encourage, and safeguard every minority.” Her goal is to help individuals, institutions and communities transform into welcoming refuges from anti-Blackness.

She is one of the founding admins of an international group devoted to exploring social justice issues through a Bahá’í lens, and is active in the Nashville area in interfaith circles, especially those dealing with the issue of eliminating racial prejudice.
