WFU Baha’i student group to hold new year celebration

The Wake Forest University Baha’i Association will host a Naw Ruz (Baha’i New Year) celebration March 20 at 5:30 p.m. in Benson University Center, Room 401. The event is free and open to the public.

The event will feature a free international buffet and musical performances by SOUL, a Wake Forest women’s a cappella group; Fort Tabarsi, a New York City rap and hip-hop group; and One Human Family Choir, a gospel group. The buffet is in observance of the end of the Baha’i 19-day fast.

The university’s Baha’i Association was recently recognized as an official student organization at Wake Forest. Seniors Rosita Najmi and Kara Johnson, and sophomores Anis Ragland and Alex Reyes led the effort to charter the group.

For more information, contact Najmi at 336-758-6537.
