Afshin Molavi lecture, Washington DC


"Democracy, Pink Floyd, and Green Cards: What Young Iranians Want"

Speaker: Afshin Molavi, journalist and writer.
Date/Time: February 8, 2001 from 12:00 - 1:00 p.m.
Location: Ronald Reagan Building, One Woodrow Wilson Plaza, 1300 Pennsylvania Ave., N.W. 5th Floor Conference Room.

Nearly twenty-two years after Iran's Islamic revolution, a new generation of youth are openly challenging the rules of the Islamic Republic in overt and subtle ways.

Journalist and writer Afshin Molavi, who spent a year traveling across Iran, profiles Iran's young generation from the inside. From pro-democracy student activists to peach fuzz-bearded hard-liners, Mr. Molavi offers stories of Iranian youth that range from the inspiring to the tragic. With more than half of Iran's 65 million population under the age of 21 and nearly two-thirds under the age of 30, he notes, the voices of these "children of the revolution" will determine the fate of this nation of great geostrategic importance.

This event is open to the public. No RSVP necessary. Seating is provided on a "first come, first served" basis. Public parking is available underneath the Reagan Building, however, we recommend coming by Metro ("Federal Triangle" stop on Blue/Orange Line), or cab.
