Why the Wounds of Racism Take So Long to Heal

In this panel discussion, produced by Bahaiteachings.org, Masud Olufani, an artist and activist from Atlanta (USA), and Maya Mansour, a model from Chicago (USA), talk with Iranian immigrant, Payam Zamani, about racism, immigration and why the wounds of racism take so long to heal. Their frank, challenging conversation cultivates a sense of urgency around healing issues of race—not just as a theoretical supposition, but as a living, breathing reality we can all own.
