A Talk with the Collective for Black Iranians

Recorded: February 27, 2022

The Collective was founded out of the necessity to be seen, heard, and understood. Through public education, storytelling, and advocacy, the Collective shares its stories of belonging to the intersections of being Black, Iranian and African/of African descent. Founding members, Alex Eskandarkhah, Priscillia Kounkou-Hoveyda, Pardis Nkoy, as well as resident historian, Beeta Baghoolizadeh, and other resident artists will be joining the panel for a global discussion of the work of the Collective, the importance of sharing memories of belonging, and stories of being Black, Iranian, and of African descent, as well as contributing to the larger narrative of what it means to be who we are.
