Two weeks before my cancer surgery I was invited to a debate in Persian on the rise of female protagonists in children’s literature (in Europe and in my opinion rather superficially in Iran). I agreed to do it (rather morbidly), thinking I might as well do it once before I die 🤣. This TV program invites everyone and their aunts and uncles to comment on all kinds of serious things and I thought, well, I am a specialist in this field and I might as well add my two cents :) #صد_زن #bbcpersian @ Manhattan

I am honored and grateful to have received this portrait drawn by the esteemed Palestinian artist Ramzi Abu Sway born, raised and living/working in Bethlehem, Palestine— humbled to have the Kufiyya bestowed on me next to the iconic poem "We have on this earth what makes life worth living" (1986) by the Palestinian National poet Mahmoud Darwish ☀️🕊

With enthusiast little Iranian readers, future scientists, astronomers, writers, engineers, artists after a beautiful visit and storytelling session (from my Persian book “Saving Maahi) during their busy summer workshop at #kanoon_parvaresh_fekri_koodak_nojavan in the city of DoRoud in Lorestan! I am grateful to Mr. @hosseini.mohsen59 (veteran children’s teacher, writer, prolific poet and composer in his own right) for his kind and generous invitation and hospitality, as well as my warmest thanks to his kind colleagues!

Within hours, nearly 1000 people have signed their petition calling on "the Highland Park Public Library to rise up for what is right, reject this racist attack on free speech, and immediately reinstate the planned P is for Palestine: A Palestine Alphabet Book" event with author Dr. Golbarg Bashi." There is the America that we love and admire.

Lesson 1: Apricots - by Nahid (Storyteller) and Esther (Artist)

Hear hear...this story told in English by Nahid Fattahi from Afghanistan (based in the US), and hear the Persian words, and her message of love passed onto her by her Baba, and now from her to her children.

"Storytelling has the power to build solidarity across communities and to foster communication and empathy with and by the larger public. Here’s my story, connecting generations across continents.

P.S. This is for you baba jaan. You will continue to live in hearts of the family you left behind."

P is for Palestine: A Palestine Alphabet Book

"When Highland Park begins censoring authors and books based on nationality, religion or race, its soul dies . . . I am a 39-year-old Jewish woman who grew up on Lawrence Avenue in Highland Park. I have a law degree and a bachelor of arts in Jewish Studies from Vassar College.

The power of the lens. Ask most progressive political activists, most people of color, homeless people about their encounters with the NYPD and and their lens will how you a different picture. Nevertheless this was a sweet moment with a kind traffic police officer in midtown Manhattan. Always remember representation, the power of media and what it shows and doesn’t show.

Don’t forget that the sequel to my “P is for Palestine: A Palestine Alphabet Book” is due out this spring! What’s equally important to the alphabet? Counting and numbers of course! So the second English language book in the @dr_bashi Diverse Books Series is titled “Counting up the Olive Tree: A Palestine Number Book.” Already critically appraised by Palestinian luminaries 🙏🏽💗🇵🇸📚 Stay tuned for its launch date and events 💚

Young readers learn to count with a band of Palestinian children who ditch their soccer game to save the last olive tree from a woeful woodcutter.⠀

A poem by the great contemporary Iranian poet fereydoon moshiri ﻓﺮﻳﺪﻭﻥ ﻣﺸﻴﺮى in Persian from c:a 1982 titled “With all My Tears for the People of Lebanon and Wherever There is War in the World,” so that no Iranian EVER questions my commitment and writings for Palestinian (and non-Iranian) children—as I learned from Hamid Dabashi and truly experienced at @Columbia University the world is indeed our home 💔🙏🏽🌍

«با تمام اشکهایم . . . برای مردم لبنان و هر جای جهان که جتگ است»

شرم تان باد ای
خداوندان قدرت
بس کنید
بس کنید از اینهمه ظلم و قساوت
بس کنید
ای نگهبانان آزادی
نگهداران صلح
ای جهان را
لطف تان تا قعر دوزخ رهنمون
سرب داغ است اینکه می بارید بر دلهای مردم سرب داغ
موج خون است ایم که می رانید بر آن کشتی خودکامگی موج خون
گر نه کورید و نه کر
گر مسلسل هاتان یک لحظه ساکت می شوند
بشنوید و بنگرید
بشنوید این وای مادرهای جان آزرده است
کاندرین شبهای وححشت سوگواری می کنند
بشنوید این بانگ فرزندان مادر مردهاست
کز ستم های شما هر گوشه زاری می کنند
بنگرید این کشتزاران را که مزدوران تان
روز و شب با خون مردم آبیاری می کنند
بنگرید این خلق عالم را که دندان بر جگر بیدادتان را بردباری میکنند
دست ها از دست تان ای سنگ چشمان بر خداست
گر چه می دانم
آنچه بیداری ندارد خواب مرگ بی گناهان است وجدان شماست
با تمام اشک هایم باز نومیدانه خواهش می کنم
بس کنید
بس کنید
فکر مادرهای دلواپس کنید
رحم بر این غنچه های نازک نورس کنید
بس کنید.

04/08/2019

In dealing with such abhorrent misogyny, I take strength from the resilience of my sisters throughput Iranian history: Qorrat Al-Ayn (mid 19th century CE), Parvin E’tesami (early 20th century CE), Forough Farrokhzad (mid 20th century CE) and Simin Daneshvar (mid-late century CE) among other feminists who neither possessed self-hating colonized minds nor were Islamophobes 🚺

Patriarchy is indeed universal but its overt and shameless manifestation in the laws and everyday culture of the Islamic Republic of Iran is nauseating—and what is most disappointing is the group of so-called “intellectual” men (by all means not all) who sadisticly uphold these inequalities instead of joining their mothers, wives, sisters, fellow female citizens in AT LEAST questioning these cruel laws and traditions. So far only self-described “secular” men have belittled my qualifications, reduced me to the wife of so and so, and taken issue with the way that I dress, the way I cover my hair etc. While holding doors for me to which I respond, open the door to a women becoming president. Don’t bullsh*t me by opening a petty door for me or holding my bag (I can carry heavy bags, plus carry a child to full-term, give birth and multitask—beat that gentlemen!). No one is free until everyone is free obviously. And Iranians, especially independent women INSIDE Iran are perfectly capable of fighting for their rights—so hands off Iran! And may no deceiving government of the United States nor its thieving child-murdering European colony named Israel ever dare use the cause of women or other legitimate causes to touch this or any other country.

The book I am holding is a classic Persian novel by one of Iran’s best-selling writers—she happens to be my father‘s first cousin. She needs no introduction: Parinoush Sanei! The book is titled “MY SHARE” (سهم من). It is in its 35th print (THIRTIETH!!!) and on top of it all, the cover of this book has been designed by my first paternal cousin, the award-winning distinguished graphic designer Parsua Bashi ✊🏽♥️🇮🇷📚🚺
