About Pupil of the Eye and Foundation Hall University
The primary purpose of Pupil of the Eye (POTE) programs is to restore dignity and raise consciousness in people of African descent, designated by Baha'u'llah as 'pupil of the eye' to ARISE, and to inspire them to play their part in eliminating racial prejudice and building a new world order. We create educational programs designed to build relationships with allies (Foundation Hall University), with similarly oppressed peoples (for example our recent (Black and Native Unity) conference, and weekly programs focusing on decolonizing our minds, healing from trauma, and creating safe spaces for teaching black people.
Funds help Barbara Talley with staffing, salaries, conference planning, website development, weekly safe space gatherings, and on-going education at www.worldembracing.net and the soon to be launched, www.ThePupilOfTheEye.com website. This POTE focused website will serve as a hub for connecting, educating, healing, and supporting POTE entrepreneurs.
