A History of

the Baha'i Faith

in South Carolina


My second book, A History of the Baha'i Faith in South Carolina (2019), is the first concise history of the first century of the new religion in a state with one of its strongest followings.


A slim volume at under 200 pages and intended for a general audience, it chronicles the arrival, growth, and development of a distinctively interracial religious movement from the dark days of Jim Crow segregation to the early 21st century.


With 70+ maps and historic images, including many that have never before been published, it provides the first opportunity for a new generation to see the faces of the remarkable Baha'i movement in South Carolina, as well as entirely new scholarship about the "Carolinian Pentecost" of the 1970s and 1980s.

The book is available in softcover for $21.99 directly from the History Press or from other online and brick-and-mortar retailers. For a list of upcoming author events, please see the events page.
