To commemorate the centenary of the passing of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, the Cambridge University Bahá’í Society has arranged online talks by eight international speakers. Each speaker will focus on one theme based on the teachings and life of this unique individual and its relevance to our world today. This is the seventh talk in the series.

’Abdu’l-Bahá’s Journey in America

During His eight-month trip to North America, ‘Abdu’l-Bahá gave some 400 public talks and a similar number of private meetings and individual meetings, spoke to as many as 100,000 people, and was covered in hundreds, if not thousands, of newspaper articles.
