The Alireza Ahmadian Lectures in Persianate and Iranian Studies Present: "Pondering Anti-Blackness in the Iranian Context: From Enslavement to the Present" - Sep 26, 2020, 4:00pm PDT
On May 25, 2020, George Floyd, a 46-year-old unarmed Black man, was murdered by law enforcement officers in Minneapolis, Minnesota for allegedly using a counterfeit bill at a grocery store. This particular incident spiked the rage of the entire world including the state of Iran and its citizenry. In this talk, presenter Dr. Amy Tahani-Bidmeshki (Pasadena City College, California) will think through the long legacy of global antiblackness and its horrific history of enslavement and genocide and discuss how Iran and Iranians (nationals and those in diaspora) are active participants in the dehumanization of Black peoples.
