'We are Iranians': Rediscovering the history of African slavery in Iran

ST CATHARINES, Canada – Behnaz Mirzai’s students often say her office is like a museum. With shards of ancient pottery recovered from the mountains of Iran’s Sistan and Baluchistan province, colourful vases from Isfahan, and tribal masks from Zanzibar adorning the shelves, it is easy to see why. Mirzai has spent nearly 20 years studying the origins of the African diaspora in Iran, including the history and eventual abolition of slavery in her native country.
