Early Years, by Daniel N. Clark

For over 35 years, Race Unity Day had been observed by Baha’is and their friends in the United States and in other countries on the second Sunday in June.

In 1992, I saw a small article in the paper about a Race Unity Day celebration in Walla Walla’s Jefferson Park in the west end, and drove by but didn’t see anyone there.
