Iranian demonstrators chant two songs: One is Morghe Sahar (Bird of the Morning) which Bahar wrote in jail, the other an anthem of Bahar's poems set to music. His daughter provides an intimate portrait of their life in Iran, and her activism in the USA beginning with our civil rights challenges of the 1950s/60s.

Intimate and emotionally engaging, this powerful and timely memoir introduces western readers to the high-profile Iranian hero Malek o'Shoara Bahar--whose freedom poem "Morghe Sahar" ("Bird of dawn") is sung regularly with great passion at rallies for human rights throughout Iran. Bahar (1182-1951) tuned his political idealism and vast poetic gifts to Iranians' deepest feelings, championing democracy, freedom, and social justice. He is revered internationally by progressive Iranians and celebrated as Iran's best poet of the 20th century, many say of the past 500 years.
