Nearly all of them had the fortune of meeting, at one time or another, Abdul-Baha--the son and appointed successor of Bahaullah, the Prophet and Founder of the Bahai Faith. Their meetings with Abdul-Baha would inspire them to teach the Faith of Bahaullah in the United States--an endeavor that often led them to encounter great suffering at the hands of those who resisted change. Racism, sexism, and economic inequality were only a few of the hardships these brave men and women had to suffer.
