What is the film about?

The RMS Cedric – White Star Line

The film is about ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, Son of Bahá’u’lláh – the Founder of the Bahá’í Faith. He was appointed as the Guide and Leader of the worldwide Bahá’í community after the passing of the Founder. He was a very unique individual and is known as “The Exemplar”.

When did He come to America?

He arrived in New York in 1912 traveling on the White Star Line Ship “Cedric” – sister ship to the Titanic. He traveled from coast to coast and visited Canada also. His arrival was covered extensively in newspapers and He was invited to speak throughout the country to diverse audiences including peace organizations, women’s organizations, race-related organizations, universities, and churches and temples. His talks focused on an astounding range of spiritual and social issues.
