What in the world is a Great American Race Unity Road Trip?

Like any other road trip, it includes lots of driving, gasoline, bathroom and food stops and an ever-changing landscape – but in a fundamental way, this journey has a very different goal.  

Eric and Genevieve Dozier, along with their daughters Justice and Worthington, are making a musical trek across the length and breadth of America to foster racial reconciliation and healing through song:

… in this new age the Manifest Light [Baha’u’llah] hath, in His holy Tablets, specifically proclaimed that music, sung or played, is spiritual food for soul and heart. – Abdu’l-Baha, Selections from the Writings of Abdu’l-Baha, p. 112.

Eric and Genevieve Dozier

Steeped in the blues and gospel traditions of the deep South, and inspired by the transcendent teachings of the Baha’i Faith, the Dozier’s co-creative partnership elucidates the transformative power of music and its ability to help mend the frayed and tattered garment of a bewildered and dis-unified humanity.  

As they travel throughout America, the family will conduct workshops, participate in devotional gatherings and give concert performances with the goal of spreading the Baha’i-inspired concept of the oneness of humanity. In this episode of America’s Most Challenging Issue, I sit down with Eric and Genevieve Dozier to discuss this remarkable initiative – and discover how music can feed the heart and soul, and serve as a catalyst for spiritual growth and social change.
