Iranian Women Are Rejecting Forced Hijab - ROBERT SEPEHR


A growing number of women in Iran are taking to streets to protest against mandatory hijabs. They are publicly removing their headscarves, tying them on sticks and waving them in public. After the Islamic Revolution in 1979 the government made it illegal for women to expose their hair in public and they cannot wear clothes that show off their figures. The penalties include jail time and lashes. Please share, thank you.

Voodoo Queen of New Orleans - ROBERT SEPEHR


Voodoo is as intrinsic to New Orleans culture as Mardi Gras, jazz and the beignet (French term for a pastry). Marie Catherine Laveau was a Louisiana Creole practitioner of Voodoo, who was renowned in New Orleans. Although some references to Marie Laveau in popular culture refer to her as a "witch," locals say she is more properly described as a 'Voodoo queen'.

The Venetian Black Nobility and Baroque - ROBERT SEPEHR


The Baroque is a highly ornate and often extravagant style of architecture, music, painting, sculpture and dance that flourished in Europe from the early 17th until the mid-18th century. It followed the Renaissance style with great innovations in dance originating at the French court under Louis 14th, where we see the first clear stylistic ancestor of classical ballet. 


The black nobility are Roman aristocratic families with a connection to the Vatican. Many of the members of Black Noble families also became high-ranking clergy and even Popes.
