browntourage:

We got to interview the LEGENDARY OG CREATOR OF PERSIAN FICTION DIASPORA Persis Karim, author and editor of three anthologies of Iranian American fiction, talks to us about the conference she is organizing at San Jose State: Cultures of Iranian American Diaspora with panels featuring creatives in art, fiction, tech, and film.

it’s really an opportunity to understand and participate in the very important evolving conversation about the role of art in both creating new ways of seeing and also drawing on old stories that still inform many people.

"A woman-of-color who writes poetry or paints or dances or makes movies knows there is no escape from race or gender when she is writing or painting. She can’t take off her color and sex and leave them at the door or her study or studio. Nor can she leave behind her history. Art is about identity, among other things, and her creativity is political."
