Hidden Histories – “Siyah Zibast, Black is beautiful”

January 25, 2022 @ 5:00 PM - 6:30 PM

With Siyah Zibast, Black is beautiful, the Collective for Black Iranians invites you for a conversation about the importance of language in identity formation and in seeing ourselves. Black is beautiful, Siyah Zibast is the first call in the Iranian community to see and say that Blackness lives in Iranian identity and vice-versa, a call to say that “Black is beautiful”. Co-founders, Priscillia Kounkou-Hoveyda, Alex Eskandarkhah, Norman Soltan Salahshour and resident historian Beeta Baghoolizadeh, as well as residents from Iran, will join us for an evening of conversations on the myriad ways in which the Collective creatively says the Persian words, “Black is Beautiful”, through its work.
