Faith in Action DC: Tod Ewing Of The Washington D.C. Baha'i Community

Each week, Faith in Action DC brings you interviews with faith leaders in the Washington, D.C. region speaking about how their faith calls them to work for social justice and serve their community.

This week marks the end of Black History Month as well as the beginning of the Baha'i month of fasting. Both events offer an opportunity to reflect on the profound lessons of the past and consider the question "Where do we go from here?" In this interview, Tod Ewing, a member of the D.C. Bahá'í community, shares a Baha'i perspective on the spiritual dimensions of racial reconciliation.

Ewing works as a diversity trainer and is the author of "Seeing Heaven in the Face of Black Men."
