When I first launched this newsletter almost six months ago, I envisioned it as a place to showcase both international news and the stories of migrants, minorities, diasporas, and other groups that tend to live multiculturally. So with that in mind, this week, I spoke with Rahim Hamid, an Ahwazi writer and human rights activist currently living in exile.
The Ahwazi Arabs are one of Iran's largest minority groups, but I didn't know a lot about their history or culture before speaking with Rahim. I hope you learn as much as I did from our conversation.
As a reminder, the opinions expressed here belong to Rahim alone, and if there's something you disagree with or would like to see corrected, you can always email me or contact him directly.
